BizLine is Ecovadis Platinum

BizCare is BizLine's CSR program that aims to optimize our environmental and social impacts while continuing to support our clients in their daily lives. Since 2018, we have implemented actions across five axes: products, packaging, supply chain, quality of life at work, and stakeholders.

Why choose EcoVadis?

EcoVadis is the global reference in CSR ratings. Operating in over 175 countries, it evaluates over 100,000 companies in more than 200 sectors, including Rexel Group and many of its suppliers! The rating covers four themes: 
- Social & Human Rights
- Environment
- Responsible Purchasing
- Ethics

Evolution of EcoVadis Assessment

As environmental challenges evolve throughout the years, EcoVadis constantly revises its survey by incorporating new questions. In addition to this, the scoring scale was raised in 2023. To achieve the Platinum medal, EcoVadis's highest ranking, a minimum of 78/100 points is now required (compared to 75 in 2022).
