Want to steer clear of
surprises in your supply chain?
Four key reasons CSR and responsible supply chain management is essential for your business
1. Supply chains are risky. A high share of the products and services we buy have their origin in countries where the risk of breaches to basic human rights are high. All companies are expected to ensure due diligence and address potential impacts and risks in their supply chains.
2. Sustainability is here to stay. Consumers, employees and investors are attracted to sustainable companies. Responsible production and sourcing is the hub that drives positive impact forward. Supply chain mapping supports an efficient implementation of ethical guidelines and other procurement requirements.
3. Complex supply chains raise expectations. As supply chains grow in complexity, so do the requirements for documentation, compliance and control. CSR in supply chain management ensures responsible and sound business practices. New, digital evaluation tools like Factlines help deal with the increasing work load.
4. Better relationships give better business. In order to achieve their goals and objectives, serious companies ensure that their suppliers also are committed to their high standards for responsible business. Supply chain mapping supports dialogue and improvements and ultimately transforms compliance needs into business opportunities.
