Supply chain & operations

Minerals and metals scarcity in manufacturing

A ticking timebomb

 

Companies are looking at the impact their operations are having on the environment as well as the positive or negative impact on the communities in which they operate. Understanding these impacts can drive improvements to corporate strategy, day to day operations and ultimately on financial performance.

What steps can you take to ensure your supply chain is responsible while achieving financial and sustainability metrics at the same time? We'll put our experience to work by helping you:

  • Assess the risks associated with your supply chain and the steps necessary to protect your brand.
  • Consider best practice from across a range of industry sectors
  • Define the characteristics you require from your suppliers in order to make sure they're sustainable.
  • Monitor and manage environmental, social and governance risks associated with your supply chain.
  • Measure the financial cost or potential impact of your carbon, water and other usage on the environment, and local communities.
  • Redesign global supply chains to be cost-efficient, minimising their impact on the environment and delivering products and services on time.
