Pinpointing risk across a product's value chain

We helped one of the world's largest ICT companies pinpoint risk hotspots across the value chain for one of its top-selling products.  

  • Challenge

    An ICT company's responsible sourcing department required granular analysis of the key risk issues associated with the raw materials present within one of its products.

  • Solution

    Issues assessed included: infrastructure support and transit for access into the field; operators in the areas of interest; surface water access, use and disposal; oilfield waste management; security and government stability; personnel logistics; and social trends.
