Evaluations of the ethical practices of an organization’s supply chain include the review of the supply chain for: anti-corruption and anti-trust, codes of conduct, confidentiality of information, human rights and labor practices, intellectual property and patents, and responsible marketing and sales engagement.
Evaluations of the economic practices of an organization’s supply chain include the review of the supply chain for: business integrity and company reputation, board and corporate leadership, enterprise risk and crisis management, materiality index, responsible tax, supply chain strategy and differentiated operating models.
Evaluations of the ecological practices of an organization’s supply chain include the review of the supply chain for: circular economy, climate strategy, energy, water and waste, material usage, and product life-cycle stewardship.
