First Things First

Dear Pierre-François Thaler,
Dear Frédéric Trinel

Before employees can read a CSR report of their employer, it has to be disclosed to them. First things first. Right?

Three Ways to Get People to Read your Corporate Responsibility Report

[…]

Your employees, consumers, shareholders and others are demanding more corporate responsibility (CR) information from companies, but they probably aren’t reading your CR report. […]

 Judy Sandford (no relation to EcoVadis) is right. The bad news: There are employers who do not want their employees to read the CSR report, if it is an EcoVadis Premium Report. These employers even reject the employees representatives’ request to read the report.

 How can employees read the report if there are zero ways to get it from their employer? When will EcoVadis publish a policy on how to support the employees of assessed suppliers as stakeholders in the CSR of these suppliers?
