A 360° perspective of your global risk exposure is not an easy thing to achieve. From the farm, to strategic suppliers and contract manufacturers, and into your own factories and operations, there are hundreds of touchpoints where a global business is exposed to external risk factors beyond its control. Systematically mapping risk at all tiers of the supply chain can ensure you mitigate the chances of reputational damage and reduce the potential for disruptions. Advances in the collection, manipulation and processing of data also means companies can now anticipate red flag issues in the supply chain before sourcing decisions are made.

We help companies harness the power of data to reveal their unique global risk footprint and uncover hidden risks within sustainable procurement programmes. Whether it’s at a country, asset, supplier or commodity level, we blend our risk analytics with third-party data on country, self-assessments, audit performance and surveys. This enables our clients to pinpoint and predict direct risks to their business; streamline the supplier selection process; and make more effective procurement decisions.
