Risk: Get it out of your system
Organisations are taking a more urgent and active approach to responsible sourcing, as customer expectations shift towards a more sustainable mindset and governments and downstream brands insist on greater transparency.
First you need to gather the facts. Do you understand every facet of your global supply chain? Do you have the knowledge you need to make informed decisions when entering new partnerships?
Navigating the maze of competing voluntary and mandatory standards, certifications and practices is the next challenge. Progress relies on a deep appreciation of the regulations, country governance, local reputations and sourcing risk you might encounter.
