DistriConsult comment: EcoVadis uses an overall score of 0 to 100 to reflect the quality of a company’s CSR system at the time of the assessment. The so-called recognition levels are based on a company’s EcoVadis score as well a minimum theme score. They also imply a percentile ranking. No medal is assigned for overall scores below 37, or if there is a low theme score (<25) in any of the four themes covered: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. The match list is as follows: Score 37 to 45 – Bronze / top 65%; score 46 to 61 – Silver / top 30% and score 62 to 10 – Gold / top 5%. Source: EcoVadis website
