How Bonduelle conducts sustainable procurement [White Paper]

Since 2018, we have been working with EcoVadis to monitor the CSR performance of our supply chain. Our aim is to encourage social and environmental performance and business ethics with our business partners. Discover our sustainable approach in the latest EcoVadis white paper.

The assessment of business partners is one of the most common practices in the broader management of ethical, social and environmental risks in a company's supply chain. However, one in two organisations assesses its suppliers using an internally-developed questionnaire, according to the 10th Sustainable Procurement Barometer (OpinionWay for ObsAR).

The practice of declarative questionnaires has clear limits, as it is not necessarily evidence-based. Driven by a desire for continuous improvement, we therefore  launched a first EcoVadis assessment campaign with our suppliers in 2018 . The objective is to verify ethical practices and to measure the social and environmental performance of our business partners in order to map risks and better define priorities, based on our CSR objectives.

We are asking our largest suppliers, in terms of purchase volume and level of risk, to undergo an EcoVadis assessment. As of 30 June, 2019, 137 suppliers had been assessed, representing 43% of the Group's procurement spending.

The use of this recognised collaborative platform provides consistency and transparency in the monitoring of our suppliers' environmental and social commitment. It also makes it possible to identify opportunities for innovation and partnerships.  

Find out more about our approach, but also that followed by Ciena, Bel and Michelin, in the EcoVadis white paper entitled 'Why the use of self-assessment of third parties is not enough', published in September 2019.
