EcoVadis ranking 2016: gold recognition for Atos again!
EcoVadis, an independent agency specialized in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) just granted Atos with a gold status for its performances in the sustainable development area. With this high level recognition, Atos confirms its leadership position in the IT Industry as a trusted partner.
This year, Atos continues its progress compared to the previous year. EcoVadis assessment methodology is based on four key areas: fair business practices, environment, labor practices and sustainable procurement. This excellent result positions Atos is among the 2% of companies which have Advanced CSR engagement. As our customers are giving an increasing importance to risk reduction in their purchasing chain, this score helps to confirm Atos as a trusted partner.
This award is the result of a Corporate Responsibility program sponsored by the executive management and embedded into businesses management and performance board since 2008. It demonstrates our continued excellence in corporate responsibility aspiring us to play a leadership role in creating value for our clients in an ethical and responsible way.
As part of its CSR program, Atos has also established a long term partnership with EcoVadis to assess the performance of most of its suppliers. In this respect, Atos requires its main suppliers to undergo an evaluation via EcoVadis. This approach, coupled with the signing of a sustainable supplier’s charter in all our contracts – which includes the respect of the United Nations Global Compact principles, helps to identify up stream and mitigate any possible risk over the Atos' supply chain.
