Consulting company ec4u expert consulting ag (ec4u) managed to improve its results of the annual EcoVadis CSR rating (corporate social responsibility). For the first time, ec4u is one of the top 1% of all participating companies.
The EcoVadis score is an annual rating measuring the quality of different processes, rules and results of the CSR management of a company. The rating method consists of an analytical system that incorporates 21 categories covering environment, social topics, ethics and sustainable procurement. It is based on international CSR standards such as ISO 26000 or the Global Reporting Initiative.

Last year, ec4u already gained a Gold rating (62-100 points) with 66 points and was part of the top 2% of all participating companies. This year, ec4u’s results could be further improved with 71 points and a place amongst the top 1% of companies that take social responsibility and their impact on society seriously.
The average rating for companies is 42,4 points in 2018. All ratings are valid till August 2019.
“We’ve participated in the last four years to test and challenge our own and our customer’s standards regarding environmental protection and employee satisfaction”, says Anja Benesch, Specialist Advisor for Corporate Finance & Procurement at ec4u. “To get to the top 1% after such a short time is amazing and it’s a good incentive to further work on our goal to be a socially responsible company.”
ec4u is active in different areas of social responsibility, environmental and ethical topics and tries to include them in all processes and standards. Aside from the CSR rating, the ec4u only recently received the Trust Award from Salesforce for a sensitive handling of customer data.
