Human rights

Eliminating Human Rights issues from the supply chain has become a critical and complex task for companies. For two thirds of manufacturing companies the deeper supply chain is a black box. Companies who lack visibility in their supply chain can’t tackle these threatening risks. Corporations are under pressure to be profitable which leads them to outsource production. In order to produce goods faster and cheaper suppliers increasingly rely on subcontractors. The result is complex, multi-tiered supply chains with hidden social, environmental and financial risks for corporations.

Environmental risks

Do you know how sustainably your products are produced? Multiple risks exist, often unknown by the companies, reaching from reputational to financial, geopolitical, natural disaster up to man-made risks. In general 6814 litres of water are required to produce one pair of jeans. To gain 1 kg of copper which is used in vehicles and electronic devices, about 348 kg of rock and soil are extracted from nature. More than 90% of sustainability issues occur in the deeper supply chain. This means far reaching risks endangering a company's success. Consequences of not recognizing those risks in time include financial and market share loss, reputational damage or supply chain disruption.
