CSR-Monitoring of global Supply Chains
- Risk managers
- Process manager
Are you aware of your social and environmental risks along your global supply chain?
Businesses as well as private customers demand sustainable supply chains and products. In addition to customer pressure, more and more regulations require documentation and sustainability monitoring within the supply chain. An example of this is the EU Timber Trade Regulation, which was issued against trade in illegally-harvested hunts and derived timber products. The regulation has three objectives:
- Prohibition of illegally harvested timber and products derived from such timber.
- Requirement for EU traders who place timber products on the EU market for the first time to exercise ‘due diligence’.
- Requirement for EU traders to keep records of their suppliers and customers.
CSRmap is an intuitive software solution for monitoring and managing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) risks. It enables companies to automatically capture and assess CSR risks for any number of products. CSRmap continuously monitors international media and social networks regarding CSR issues. It acts as a early warning system for potential reputational risks. The integrated audit function enables the collaboration with auditors in the auditing of the production units.
WEB-BASED AND INTUITIVE DASHBOARD
The CSRMAP dashboard gives you a quick overview of the products, suppliers, and factories which need most of your attention. It highlights the entities with the highest risk and those with the highest risk delta compared to the past calculation period. Country ratings quickly indicate previous developments in your production regions.
PRODUCT-BASED CSR RISK CALCULATION
CSRMAP calculates a product-specific CSR risk and shows you which products or supply chains need your immediate attention (e.g., because of a strike in one of your production areas). The product-specific risk is calculated based on the analyzed news/social media including their geographic context, historic audit data for the production facility in question, and general CSR statistics for the region (corruption index, child labor index, etc.). For each product, CSRMAP provides you with details regarding product information, associated factories/suppliers, supply chain information, accepted regions of origins for the used raw materials, and components the product is composed of. The entire data is extracted in an automated way from your ERP – no additional data entry is necessary.
For each supplier and for each production step, general information, GPS coordinates as well as related production structures, suppliers and products are stored. Storing the exact geographic location allows CSRmap to associate identified CSR leads to the relevant suppliers and production stages.
CSRmap allows to visualize the CSR risk of entire regions and their suppliers and production units. This information can be used to identify new suppliers and for efficient auditing of existing suppliers and production sites.
SOPHISTICATED CSR INTELLIGENCE
CSRmap automatically collects information on CSR premises, such as child labor, strikes, corruption, pollution, on websites of international media and social networks. Based on that information it checks whether these leads affect your supply chains. The risk assessment for each region is made up of past CSR prefs and available statistics of the region. The analyzed media and social networks can be defined independently of the used language.
CSRmap offers the automated creation of risk reports, as required, for example, in the context of the EU Timber Regulation for the documentation of orders. For each order, CSRmap creates a report containing the risk assessment for the involved production units, suppliers and regions at the time of order. In the event of a check, the required information can be delivered to the authorities within minutes of the order.
RAW MATERIAL DOCUMENTATION
Legal requirements (e.g., EU Timber Regulation) require the documentation of sources of raw materials (wood, stone, etc.). CSRmap assists you in complying with legal requirements by comparing the raw materials processed in the system with a list of accepted regions of origin. For the EU Timber Regulation, CSRmap uses a list which clearly identifies which species of wood from which timber is allowed to be imported and used. If raw materials from unacceptable sources of supply are used, the risk of the associated products is increased accordingly and brought to the attention of the user.
CSRmap provides complete auditing functionality, which allows you to commission and perform audits to external auditors. The audit questionnaires are customized to your company's needs. Images and documents can be uploaded directly to the system. The audit results are automatically taken into account in the risk calculations and allow you to set further steps based on current data.
AUTOMATED SUPPLY CHAIN MONITORING
CSRMAP enables an integrated overview of all products, suppliers, production sites and the associated CSR risks. For each of those entities, CSRMAP visualizes the entire supply chain including land routes and departure/destination ports. As such CSRMAP is capable of providing you with relevant incident information along your supply chain (e.g., an upcoming strike at an important port). The calculation method, the weighting, as well as the used input sources can be fully adapted to the customer’s needs.
