The EcoVadis assessment evaluates 21 sustainability criteria in four key areas including environment, labor and human rights, ethics and sustainable procurement.

“This recognition shows how diligently our teams are working, not only to make progress on our commitments, but to transparently report on it,” said Harold Jones, chief sustainability officer and executive vice president, Eaton Business System, Eaton. “Our work in this space is never done, but honors like these show us we’re on the right track—and give us the momentum to continue to power forward.”

EcoVadis’ business sustainability ratings are based on international sustainability standards such as the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and the ISO 26000 standard.
