Top score for GEODIS Corporate Social Responsibility policy
GEODIS achieved a score of 67/100 in the 2015 EcoVadis Assessment, a strong performance that confirms its excellent Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach. In constant progression since 2009, GEODIS’ peaking score has reached the “Advanced” level for the first time ever.
This result raises GEODIS to first place in its category out of 252 companies, and puts it in the top 2% of all the suppliers assessed by EcoVadis.

The assessment covers four broad topics: the environment, social responsibility, business ethics, and responsible purchasing. GEODIS’ score can be broken down as follows:
- The environment: 80/100.
- Social responsibility: 70/100.
- Business ethics: 50/100.
- Responsible purchasing: 60/100.
“This assessment reflects the high-quality groundwork that has been laid over the years on CSR matters across the Group over the past years. As a responsible and international company, GEODIS has an important role to play in delivering solutions on environmental, social and ethical issues within our sector," notes Marie-Christine Lombard, CEO of GEODIS. "We are confident that next year's results will be just as revealing of the continuous progress that our employees have achieved in terms of Corporate Social Responsibility".
