RBC risk assessment
New and forthcoming legislation requires companies to assess the human and labour rights and environmental risks across their operations and their full value chain. We work with companies to design and implement this process, providing technical expertise and credible and robust risk mapping, in a process based on OECD due diligence guidance, the UNGPs and emerging legislative requirements.
Companies preparing for forthcoming mandatory legislation will need to conduct a risk mapping and risk prioritisation process across their operations and full value chain.
We specialise in supporting companies with complex international supply chain and operations in multiple locations with this process.
We work with companies to design a process based on their resources and capabilities and conduct the risk assessment on their behalf using credible and robust sources, consulting with experts and stakeholders as relevant. Our proprietary OECD-aligned tool covers all required stages in the risk identification process, including scoping, risk heat maps, deep-dive analysis on risks that are severe and/or emerging, prioritisation of risks and meaningful stakeholder engagement.
