EcoVadis is the collaborative platform providing sustainability ratings and performance improvement tools for global supply chains. EcoVadis’ easy-to-use CSR scorecards help companies to monitor suppliers’ environmental, ethical, and social practices across 150 purchasing categories and 110 countries.
Over 130 industry leaders such as Verizon, Merck, Coca Cola Enterprises, Heineken, Johnson & Johnson, Renault-Nissan, ING Bank, and Nokia use EcoVadis to reduce risk, drive innovation and foster transparency and trust among over 25,000 trading partners.
In our market buyers and suppliers collaborate on accelerated cash flow at a rate that’s profitable for both. Buyers simply upload their approved invoices into the market and establish their target return and cash available. Suppliers request early payment of their approved invoices at a rate that works for them. C2FO optimises the award of early payments to give buyers the maximum return and to focus early payment for those suppliers that need it most. It’s that simple.
Rethink the way you do business. Tradeshift is challenging the status quo of siloed software. We’re fighting for an open, connected way of doing business. Our weapon of choice? A platform that empowers everyone in the trade process and connects you to ALL your suppliers. Volatility, disruptive innovation, and extreme competition, mean that unpredictability is “the new normal”, making agility the future. Don’t think you need agility to survive?
