Launched in 2007, EcoVadis measures the quality of a company’s sustainability management system through its policies, actions and results. The assessment focuses on 21 sustainability criteria within four main themes: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement.

DC Advisory has achieved a silver sustainability rating, ranking in the top 12% of rated companies in financial services, scoring particularly strongly in the Ethics and Labor & Human Rights categories. Environmental management, including renewable energy consumption and energy efficiency measures, also received strong scoring.

Sustainability Executive Sponsors – Stefan Jaecker CEO, DC Advisory Germany, and Scott Wieler, Chairman, DC Advisory US – commented: “Since pledging our support to the three UN SDGs over three years ago, we have been working for a more sustainable future. Completing the EcoVadis assessment for the first time and already achieving a Silver recognition is testament to the hard work of our employees all over the world. With this rating, we can now benchmark our performance, identify opportunities to improve our corporate responsibility, and continue to make a difference for our people, the planet and progress.”

In 2020, DC Advisory pledged support for three UN Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG 3: Good Health & Wellbeing; SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities; and SDG 13: Climate Action.
