Due diligence for ESG risks in responsible organizations and supply chains
Modern supply chains are complex, fragmented and rely on a large number of suppliers and intermediaries from all parts of the world. Relevant supply chains due diligence challenges include lack of transparency due to inconsistent or missing data, fraudulent data, lack of interoperability of data systems between actors, time consuming paper-based processes, limited information on product traceability, and lack of financing for due diligence activities.
