Online Tools and Apps
For any business, managing supply-chain risk assessment projects can be complicated and time consuming. They’re challenging to set up and difficult to administer, and collecting, processing and reporting data can be a major task, out of scope for many organisations.
Here’s a quick look at just a few of our proprietary online tools.
Risk Readiness Assessment
Populated with hundreds of entities in the mining and minerals processing supply chain, our Risk Readiness Assessment is an online self-assessment and due diligence tool designed to raise awareness of compliance requirements and promote the adoption of best practices.
Specifically, it encourages supply chain managers to engage with suppliers at every tier, enables minerals and metals producers and manufacturers to communicate risk management practices and performance to downstream customers, and motivates businesses in the mining, minerals and metals supply chain to identify best-in-class sustainability practices.
