About ELEVATE

ELEVATE was formed by founders of mission-driven companies who shared a passion for innovation and impact.

ELEVATE is the leading business risk and sustainability solutions provider. We deliver improved organizational performance through sustainability and supply chain assessment, consulting, program management and analytics.

Our purpose drives our passion and our excellence.

We believe in sustainable, balanced and inclusive economic growth. We believe in an economic model that collectively activates business and other stakeholders to improve people’s lives and preserve the planet. This requires a commitment to transparency, visibility and the thoughtful management of risk and performance. It requires a commitment to business driven sustainability.

To achieve this purpose: We engage, we innovate, we inspire, we ELEVATE.

Uniquely positioned

ELEVATE holds a unique place in the industry.

We are the only independent sustainability and supply chain services provider with global reach, local expertise, a beyond audit assessment and improvement model coupled with sustainability expertise, and unique insights from our quality data.

We are also the single biggest dedicated business risk and sustainability solutions provider. In terms of audits performed annually, we are the fourth biggest company overall. We conduct over 12,000 assessments and audits per year with the geographic reach to 110 countries.

It’s not only about performing audits to high standards of quality and integrity. As industry leaders of the beyond audit model, we institute processes before audits, during facility visits, and after audits that deliver scalable and sustainable improvements for businesses and workers.

Our business-minded perspective and relentless focus on transparency, innovation, sustainability and measurable impact in the full value chain delivers lasting positive change for companies, brands and retailers, suppliers, factories and workers.

In addition, we own unique and robust data that support our ability to deliver customer benchmarking and segmentation to drive program effectiveness.
