Third-party risk

Heavy industry risk management

Access third-party risk management solutions to efficiently source and onboard suppliers, distributors and resellers in heavy manufacturing industries, while meeting global regulations and safeguarding business reputation.

As heavy industry businesses continue to expand their global reach, it is crucial to holistically assess supply chain and distribution networks to manage and mitigate operational, financial, ESG and other risks.

Heavy industry businesses rely on sourcing raw materials globally and selling products to large international purchasers - including steel production, machine tool building, locomotive manufacturing and more.

Coupled with volatility in product supply and demand, heavy industries face existing and emerging risks and need to ensure that global regulations are met, third parties are regularly monitored, and ESG frameworks are implemented in risk strategies.

It is therefore necessary for heavy industries to incorporate a robust risk management strategy that covers the entire supply chain and distribution network, to mitigate any potential negative impact on their business.

What is due diligence for heavy industry companies?

It is important for your heavy industry business to be knowledgeable of third-party sourcing, to manage and mitigate potential operational and ESG risks. This includes assessing if raw materials are sourced legally and if suppliers adhere to global labour and environmental laws. 

If any of your stakeholders in the supply chain and distribution network face economic sanctions, then your business will face financial and integrity risks. Additionally, as supplier networks become more complex, intellectual property protection becomes a priority, and third parties must be assessed on their reliability to prevent intellectual property theft. 

Our third-party risk management solutions assist heavy manufacturing industries in assessing, managing and mitigating operational, ESG, financial and other risks while adhering to global regulatory and compliance standards.
