How to improve your supply chain resilience and long-term sustainability

With a methodical risk based approach improving the overall sustainability of your organisation is possible.

Step 1: Identify and Prioritse Risk

Identify potential risks in the supply chain, such as forced labour, child labour, and environmental pollution.

Companies should prioritise risks based on their severity and likelihood of occurring.

Step 2: Conduct Due Diligence

Once risks are identified, companies should conduct appropriate levels of due diligence on their suppliers to assess their compliance with relevant laws and standards.

This may include conducting audits, site visits, or engaging with stakeholders.

Step 3: Mitigate Risks

Companies must take steps to mitigate identified risks in their supply chains.

This may involve communicating and collaborating with suppliers to address non-compliance, terminating relationships with non-compliant suppliers, or providing training and capacity building.
