Helping you deliver ESG best practice

Improving environmental, social and governance (ESG), globally, has long been our mission. So you know you’re in the right place for Achilles to help you meet your own ESG goals.

THE CHALLENGE

Keeping ESG covered

While you know that ethical behaviour, environmental considerations and compliance in your own company are a given, there may be those in your supply chain who aren’t so thorough. Covering everything from greenhouse gas emissions to the sourcing of raw materials, we make sure your suppliers are complying with international law and best practices, so your ESG performance can’t be compromised.

BENEFITS

Raising standards in ESG

Consideration of social, ethical and environmental standards when selecting and managing suppliers leverages the power of supply chain relationships to deliver change at scale.

Achilles Score

Through a series of rigorous questionnaires, we pre-qualify suppliers and score them, benchmarking each supplier across ESG, financial, and health and safety metrics – regardless of industry or geography.

ESG Risk Ratings

Our ESG score allows you to quickly see potential environmental, social and governance issues in your supply chain. It gives you an immediate snapshot of your ESG risk, allowing you to mitigate it.

Compliance

We sit down with you to get a full understanding of your objectives before putting automated compliance rules into the Achilles system. Once this is done, supplier status will immediately show ‘Compliant’ or ‘Non-compliant’ based on your criteria.

54%

of businesses say the most common driver of their ESG initiatives is a social conscience and the desire to be good corporate citizens​.

As experts in validation and compliance, we can help you demonstrate your ethical commitments in less time, at less cost and with less effort. 

Through us, you know your operations and reputation are protected from the negative effects of corruption – and that Conflict Minerals have not entered global markets through your supply chain.
