Responsible Supply Chain

We help global companies manage risks and improve business continuity through the strengthening of a responsible supply chain.

For over 25 years our experts have improved EHS performance within our clients’ supply chains – both domestically and around the globe with specialized expertise in Asian third-party technology manufacturing operations.

Our approach includes:

  • An environmental, health and safety (EHS) risk assessment process for assurance in third party manufacturing;
  • Internal EHS capacity building to drive a more sustainable performance, safety and health culture for multinational companies.

Responsible Supply Chain Approach

Responsible Supply Chain Approach

How do we do this?

  • By employing a proven environmental, health and safety (EHS) risk assessment process;
  • By leveraging the experience, resources, and local market knowledge of excellent international partners;
  • By incorporating local and national regulations, international standards, and established best practices; and,
  • By utilizing EHS assessment findings to develop pragmatic training and knowledge transfer to third party manufacturers.

Many supply chain deficiencies and risks result from third party manufacturers lacking sufficient knowledge to meet the standards expected of them. Our teams deliver a series of EHS knowledge transfer workshops that educate third-party workers and drive supply chain improvements.

Together with our clients and partners we have significantly raised the level of safety, health, and environmental performance at contract manufacturing sites in Asia and throughout the world. By building EHS competencies we have introduced an effective model for other leading multinationals to employ in fulfilling their CSR responsibilities throughout the supply chain.
