IMD confirms its headway in environmental and social performance with new EcoVadis rating
September 2019

IMD has stepped up its action and measurement efforts in the area of sustainability in recent years. EcoVadis announced the business school’s Silver rating for 2019, showing a clear year-on-year progression.

First accredited in 2015 to demonstrate its responsible practices to partners and clients, IMD now participates in the voluntary program annually.

The EcoVadis ratings measure organizations’ activities to ensure and promote respect for the environment, human rights, ethics, sustainable procurement and more.

“We are accelerating our efforts in the area of sustainability. I am pleased that our EcoVadis rating shows we’re moving forward from a respectable position,” said IMD Sustainability Partner and Researcher Natalia Olynec.
