We have partnered with global law firm, Norton Rose Fulbright, to design a supply chain due diligence questionnaire and risk assessment that enables compliance with the supply chain due diligence mandates of the Lieferkettengesetz (LkSG) legislation in Germany.
The module provides a comprehensive supply chain risk assessment on the stipulated by the legislation including: human rights impact, environmental risks, security, compliance controls, documentation and more.

Using this, you will receive analytic responses from suppliers as to their steps to mitigate supply chain issues. You will be able to ensure compliance and take the necessary measures to raise awareness and standards of sustainability within your supply chain, report on your programmes effectiveness and track improvement over time.
