Global CSR Risk & Performance index
Recently EBG | Network hosted a webinar enabled by EcoVadis focusing on their recent Global CSR Risk & Performance index. An Index that analyzes the CSR practices of more than 20,400 companies over 2015 and 2016 using EcoVadis’ CSR Ratings, which evaluate companies on 21 CSR criteria across four themes: environment, labor practices / human rights, ethics/fair business practices, and supply chain.
Webinar poll results
The live poll results suggest – as do all other communication EBG have had with large supply chain and procurement organizations – that companies are very engaged in illuminating their supply networks. but it is proving to be a challenge.
