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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
