Eight in 10 firms lack supplier due diligence measures – a key factor in preparing for risks and disruptions to supply chains, according to a report. 

The report by Ecovadis found while health crisis preparedness differed among industries, overall preparedness levels were “concerningly low”. 

Ecovadis analysed data from 35,000 suppliers from around the world to understand which parts of global supply chains were underprepared for health crises. 

Areas examined by Ecovadis included employee health and safety, working conditions, and supply chain due diligence.
