Company Risks

Company risks analysis demands a granular examination of the internal processes, supply chain dynamics, and potential reputational impacts that could be hidden with an organisation.

Sector Risks

Analysing sector risks involves a deep dive into the unique regulatory landscapes of diverse industries, each with its own set of environmental, social, and governance considerations.

Public Issue Risks

Identifying and evaluating emerging topics and public issues relevant to your company requires constant vigilance and a keen awareness of evolving societal expectations.

Monitoring Supplier Risks

Supplier risks can cause financial, operational and reputational damage to organisations, making identifying, categorising, and mitigating against them essential for an effective supply chain risk management programme.

Our services assist clients by providing unique insights into areas such as environmental sustainability, human rights violations, corruption, and adverse news topics tailored to each client’s needs.

Financial Risks

Credit, liquidity, operational, and market risks can all affect suppliers and disrupt the supply chain.

Mitigation involves centralising vendor data, mapping supplier relationships, and going beyond credit checks.

ESG Risks

With the rise in awareness and accountability, environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks can significantly impact a company’s reputation.

Evaluating third-party practices is therefore crucial in managing ESG risks in the supply chain.

Due Diligence

Conducting thorough due diligence is imperative before engaging with a new supplier.

This process verifies the supplier’s financial stability and compliance with international laws, environmental standards, and social justice issues.

Resource Allocation

Manual due diligence can become problematic if a company has insufficient resources or lacks access to relevant and up-to-date information.

Our data services simplify this process, ensuring the resilience and sustainability of our clients’ supply chains.
