GeSI Announces Third Annual ICT Leadership Index to Showcase ICT Company Leaders in Sustainable Business Practices

2nd June 2017

Madrid, 2 June 2017 - The Global E-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI) is pleased to announce the third annual ICT Leadership Index to recognize exceptional performance by top suppliers of its members in the field of sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices. The vision of GeSI is to promote leadership in sustainability and recognizes that sustainability in the ICT industry supply chain is a strategic issue for its members.

In 2013 GeSI launched an initiative called Electronic Tool for Accountable Supply Chains (E-TASC), which is powered by the technology and expertise of EcoVadis and is currently used by 14 GeSI member companies to evaluate the CSR performance of their supplier base. Since its inception, E-TASC, has scaled to engage over 4000 suppliers on their CSR performance.

The ICT Leadership Index identifies best-in-class companies across four ICT super sectors (Tertiary services, Telecom & infrastructure, Manufacturing of electronic components, and Manufacture & assembly of ICT equipment) based on their CSR performance rating.

The sustainability performance rating is based on assessment of companies’ CSR management systems on four themes - environment, labor & human rights, fair business practices/ethics and supply chain – which is verified by the EcoVadis CSR expert analysts.

The Index methodology compares both overall scores and “theme scores” within the ICT super sectors as well as takes into account stakeholders inputs to determine the ranking. To read about the methodology of the ICT Leadership Index and see more detailed results and comparisons please click here.
