Our research has shown that a vast majority of social risks can be associated with supply chains. What differentiates companies and investors are the actions that they take to systematically and continuously assess, prioritize, act upon, and reduce these risks, assessing the positive impacts of programs, and updating their priorities, in a continuous improvement and achievement cycle. Our approach to strategy development is based on understanding the firm culture, context and level of influence, and proposing paths forward and collaborations that have the best potential to lower risks and create the most positive outcomes.
