Today’s global supply chains are complex, dispersed, opaque and inflexible. Spanning less mature and unregulated markets, they are exposed to slavery and dangerous working conditions, environmental contamination and much more.

COVID-19 has revealed the vulnerability of traditional models. Increasingly, customers and other stakeholders are demanding more environmentally and socially responsible supply chains.

Astute businesses are already embedding Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles to achieve an ethically and environmentally resilient supply chain, which enhances operational performance, promotes collaboration with third parties, and makes a positive impact on our planet and people.

How we can help

We can help you design, transform and manage a digitally enabled value chain based on: 

  • Real-time end-to-end tracking and traceability: of third parties and operations through AI-enabled predictive technology
  • Measurement: conducting due diligence screening of third-party ethical compliance, and quantifying the true environmental impact of movement of products
  • Prioritisation: identifying, sequencing and implementing the risks and solutions that have the greatest positive impact on the business
  • Optimisation: enhancing the ethical and environmental footprint of the value chain to improve performance, mitigate risk and enhance reputation
  • Proactive management: using external data to enable predictive risk mitigation; educating and influence third parties through shared ethical and sustainability goals
