Evaluating the sustainability of international supply chain partners and, consequently, one’s own can be challenging for businesses. As global trade expands, so does the complexity of assessing a company’s impact on the world. Various factors must be considered, including environmental impact, labor and human rights practices, ethical considerations, and sustainable procurement processes. Even when companies adhere to local guidelines, these can vary significantly from region to region. So, what is the solution? Enter EcoVadis, a global standard-setter that takes the stage.
