In alignment with the expectations of our executive management, customers and other stakeholders to manage our business in a responsible manner, Xylem has entered a new chapter in our Sustainability journey: we have launched in 2020 a sustainable procurement program to monitor social and environmental performance in our supply chain.
To make this initiative as efficient as possible for both Xylem and our suppliers, we have selected the EcoVadis monitoring platform. EcoVadis combines sustainability expertise and online tools that will save you time and resources on sustainability assessment and reporting in the years to come with:
- Confidential and efficient Sustainability questionnaire and expert analysis
- A Sustainability Performance Scorecard (which you can share with other clients as well)
- Tools for benchmarking and improving your Sustainability practices
Xylem has been responding to the EcoVadis assessment since 2018. Participation in this program will be a mandatory condition to get the status of Preferred Supplier by 2025, and our suppliers’ engagement and performance results will be integrated into our sourcing process.
