What is EcoVadis?

EcoVadis has given Toyota Material Handling Europe the highest possible rating, Platinum, for the third year running, ranking us within the top 1% of all corporations globally which take part in these assessments. But what does this mean? And why is it so important?

About Ecovadis

What is EcoVadis?

Ecovadis provide a system to allow organisations to evaluate their own and their supply chain’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) levels. 

What does EcoVadis measure?

It covers 21 CSR indicators across 4 main themes, Environment, Labour and Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.

What do you have to do to get an EcoVadis rating?

To get an EcoVadis rating an organisation needs to provide evidence against each of the indicators. This does not just mean providing a document that says we do something – we need to show that we actually do it. It is a very thorough process and takes a lot of hard work and collaboration from a number of teams including HR, QHSE and our service and technical teams.

EcoVadis and Toyota

What are the main benefits of having the EcoVadis rating?

It allows us to demonstrate to all our stakeholders the investment that Toyota puts into CSR, and also that part of our success comes from being an ethical organisation that takes care of our people, our customers, the environment and the communities we live in.

How has EcoVadis helped Toyota to improve its performance?

Toyota has teams dedicated to ensuring high standards of CSR. Ecovadis allows us to measure how good we are and the areas in which we may be able to improve. It is good to have people looking in from the outside who deal with many CSR leading organisations analysing what and how we do things. This allows us to benchmark ourselves against other leading organisations, many of which are our customers.
