EcoVadis provides the leading solution for monitoring sustainability in global supply chains, with over 50,000 companies already assessed in over 150 countries across 190 sectors.
Compared to the EcoVadis assessment in 2018, for which dormakaba received a silver medal, the company now improved from 57 to 66 points. The rating of EcoVadis focused on the four topics Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement. Each of the four assessment themes is scored individually, and weighted to an overall score. These can each be compared to average industry scores as shown in the overview of dormakaba's 2019 scorecard below.
Biggest improvements in labor & human rights
dormakaba has significantly improved in the area of Labor & Human Rights, jumping twenty points in just one year. This is, among other reasons, due to a newly released Statement of Commitment on Human Rights and an approved human rights due diligence process, which EcoVadis highlighted as "exceptional".
