P r o c u r e m e n t R isk S u s t a i na bi li t y R i s k As supply chains globalize and become more complex, so do risks and opportunities. A robust risk mapping process is essential for gaining visibility and understanding of priorities to drive your assessment and monitoring efforts. In order to avoid faulty prioritization and misaligned action plans, this process requires significant domain expertise and reliable data. EcoVadis risk mapping services lead you through this essential prerequisite step to supplier assessment and equip you with the knowledge and tools to move forward with confidence. This helps ensure that your overall program - including assessments, performance monitoring and on-site audits - is well optimized and poised to deliver the greatest impact and maximum returns from your effort. How It Works Our risk mapping methodology combines EcoVadis' industry and country risk information with your company's procurement information to calculate an overall risk level. Industry risk has been defined by EcoVadis for 185 ISIC purchasing categories. For every category, the materiality of risks for 21 criteria has been identified across Environment, Labor & Human Rights and Ethics and consolidated into an Overall Risk level on a six-tier scale. Country risk has been defined by EcoVadis for 150 countries based on six themes. The country risk calculation consolidates findings from the world's leading sources (e.g., Environmental Performance Index, Human Development Index, Corruption Control Index). Procurement risk is calculated from key information that you provide: - Volume of expenditure - Strategic importance of the activity - Exposure of the customer/brand Risk Mapping Services Benefits of risk mapping services: Understand risks in your supply base by industry/ category, country and purchasing risk Prioritize the risks against your procurement priorities Develop an assessment strategy aligned with your objectives and an action plan to launch Industry Risk Procurement Risk Country Risk Risk mapping
