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. This enhances operational performance, promotes collaboration with third parties, and makes a positive impact on our planet and people.

We offer an end-to-end solution to help identify key ethical and ESG risks. We help boost resilience and sustainability across your supply chain, and implement governance frameworks to remediate ESG breaches.

  • Risk assessments: Undertake a risk assessment of your supply chain in order to identify key vulnerabilities based on your supplier footprint.
  • Real-time tracking: Real-time tracking and traceability over suppliers and movements of goods.
  • Screening, risk-ranking & monitoring: Undertake ESG due diligence on suppliers to evaluate and rank them based on their ESG profile and track record, and monitor them for ESG breaches.
  • Compliance: Implement governance frameworks to support ethical practices across your supply chain and comply with specific ESG regulations, such as the UK Modern Slavery Act or the EU 2021 Conflict Minerals Directive. 

Transforming the supply chain

We support you in driving a step change in your ethical and sustainable footprint building resilience and collaboration through:

  • Optimising the supply chain to create an agile, multi-modal and digitally enabled value network that enhances your ethical and environmental footprint.
