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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Keeping your ESG in check
We allow you to concentrate on doing what you do best – growing your business – knowing the important questions have been asked.
We gather insight on everyone in your supply chain – including subcontractors – to ensure workers are treated fairly. We provide an additional level of rigour to your code of conduct, CSR and modern slavery statements.

We guide you through the whole cycle offering insights to track and measure improvement, helping you take the action where necessary and mitigate the risk of unethical business practices in your business and supply chain.
The more controversial the issue, the greater the damage if your brand is tainted by it.

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