Accurate Vendor ESG Ratings for Informed Onboarding​

VEI significantly reduces time to onboard vendors by providing third-party risk managers with a globally recognized rating (Platinum, Gold, Silver & Bronze medals) to quickly communicate the supplier’s performance level across environmental, social and ethical risk areas.

Thorough Vendor Assessments

ProcessUnity VEI integrates Ecovadis’ ESG factors with the risk intelligence from the Shared Assessments SIG questionnaire to give analysts a wider view of potential risks and greater insight into a company’s reputation risk or potential for supply chain disruption.

Real-Time Issue Management

Intelligent automation enhances issue identification and creation throughout a vendor’s lifecycle. Third-party analysts gain a complete issue tracking and management process that reduces subjectivity and speeds resolution.

Dashboard and Analytics

ProcessUnity Vendor ESG Intelligence dashboards and reports provide a wholistic view of risk across vendor populations that enable, benchmark and compare performance across the entire vendor population.

Solution Components

ProcessUnity Vendor ESG Intelligence is comprised of four key components: ProcessUnity Vendor Risk Management, the ProcessUnity EcoVadis Connector, EcoVadis’ business sustainability ratings and a combination of pre-built workflows, notifications, reports and dashboards that power enhanced third-party due diligence, vendor assessments, issue management and ongoing monitoring processes.

EcoVadis rates sustainability performance by assessing a company’s policies, actions and results, as well as inputs from third-party professionals and external stakeholders across seven management indicators and 21 sustainability criteria, in four key themes:

  • Environment
  • Labor & Human Rights
  • Ethics
  • Sustainable Procurement

Operating at a global level, EcoVadis considers regional regulations and languages while also incorporating industry labels and certifications or the individual standards of a company or organization. EcoVadis accounts for a company’s own documentation, third party inputs like labels and certifications, as well as external news sources like watch lists and databases to give procurement and sustainability teams immediate ESG risk insights across their entire supply base.

Benefits: Vendor ESG Intelligence

This robust risk visibility across all suppliers enhances third-party due diligence, vendor assessments, issue management and ongoing monitoring processes by providing actionable insights into environmental, social and ethical risks. ProcessUnity VEI lends insight into the vendor’s biodiversity, pollution issues, product use and end of life practices, employee health and safety, modern slavery, human trafficking violations, corruption, anticompetitive practices and more.

ProcessUnity seamlessly integrates EcoVadis’ sustainability ratings into its leading vendor risk management platform using a pre-built connector – eliminating the need to manually enter or recalculate rating and streamlining the vendor review process within one application. Analysts are presented with real-time EcoVadis reports and can review the full details behind each assessment. Additionally, the analyst can request a new assessment within the ProcessUnity platform.  These ratings and scores from EcoVadis are paired with the overall risk calculation inside ProcessUnity to lend insight into a supplier’s environmental and social practices and overall risk to the business.
