Supply chain risks

Supply chain sustainability is increasingly recognised as a key generator of business value and an important element of strong corporate responsibility performance.​

Knowing and managing the economic, social, and environmental risks of your supply chain is an essential measure of your organisation’s performance. ​


Why supply chain risk is important ​

Organisations are exposed to a multitude of risks from their supply chains including breaches to intellectual property rights and company assets, compromising human rights or labour rights, risks to occupational health and safety, and causing environmental damage. ​

These can cause substantial reputation or business risks to any organisation. ​

Our evaluation and support approach is pragmatic and collaborative leading to mutual benefits for your company and your suppliers. ​
