EcoVadis and Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) have announced a partnership whereby the two companies offer an enhanced service to both EcoVadis and CDP Supply Chain’s customers. The partnership is founded on the companies’ expertise: CDP has in-depth knowledge of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, climate change and water, whereas EcoVadis covers all main CSR topics, providing an easy-to-use and dynamic web interface for end-users.  

EcoVadis and Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) have announced a partnership to offer an improved service to EcoVadis and CDP Supply Chain’s customers, while reducing the requests for companies in the supply chains of large purchasing corporations to report on how they are managing carbon.  

The partnership is founded upon the complementary skills and knowledge of the two entities. EcoVadis covers all main CSR topics, supplying a dynamic and user-friendly web interface for end users, and CDP has expertise in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, climate change and water. The partnership allows responding companies to minimise their reporting by automatically transferring the information in their CDP response to EcoVadis’ system.  

“Partnering with EcoVadis will mean that suppliers that have already disclosed their carbon and climate-change information to CDP will not have to duplicate their efforts in the EcoVadis system. The two systems are extremely complementary with EcoVadis providing powerful high-level data across 21 pillars of sustainability and CDP Supply Chain providing that crucial deeper dive on carbon, climate-change and water,” said Dexter Galvin, Head of CDP Supply Chain.  

Having access to CDP’s detailed information will improve the quality of the EcoVadis supplier sustainability rating data. CDP Supply Chain will benefit from the EcoVadis supplier scorecards as a means to accelerate the adoption and deployment of its data by procurement managers.  

“We are very happy to collaborate with CDP, which we always recognised as the leader for standardised climate-change reporting. Through this collaboration, we are willing to bring benefits to both suppliers and buying organisations. There is a growing pressure in all sectors to analyse supply-chain sustainability issues and, through this collaboration, we intend to minimise the effort for suppliers worldwide,” declared Pierre-François Thaler, EcoVadis Co-President.  

About the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP)  

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) is an international, not-for-profit organisation providing the only global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.  

CDP harnesses the power of market forces, including 655 institutional investors with assets of US$78 trillion, to collect information from companies on their greenhouse-gas emissions, along with the assessment of climate change and water risk as well as water opportunity.  CDP now holds the largest collection globally of primary climate-change and water data, and puts these insights at the heart of strategic business, investment and policy decisions.
