A guide to risk assessment in supply chains
Who’s behind it? – Sedex (2020)
How can it help? – The document provides an introduction to risk assessment on human rights and environmental issues in supply chains for Sedex members. It is being produced in the context of the new Sedex Risk Assessment Tool, Radar, but it is not a users’ guide to that Tool specifically. Rather it aims to provide a broader view of the issues and processes associated with identifying and addressing risks in supply chains.
In particular it aims to help:
- New members, or those that are new to human rights due diligence, to develop effective risk assessment strategies
- Existing members that currently use Radar to strengthen their risk management
- Organisations that are looking to develop relevant risk assessment programmes
