STAR Index is a robust assessment tool, gathering key data from around your business in terms of policy, performance, participation, and practice, across the wider horizons of risk and compliance in your sector, and in complex supply chains. It is cloud hosted, intuitive, and involves key stakeholders across your business to engage and understand your starting point on your responsible sourcing and operating journey.
STAR is an acronym – offering a RAG-rated assessment across Sustainability, Technical Assurance & Transparency, Assets in your supply chains and their impact on the Environment, and Responsible Sourcing, underpinning the ‘Triple Bottom Line’ credentials of your business and your supply chain partners.
Once the assessment is completed our scorecards present you with your STAR Index profile, and highlight areas of risk, exposure, non-conformance, and requirements for improvement and remediation.
Developed using years of experience in supply chain risk management, our self-assessment questionnaire and supporting platform features such as supply chain mapping and data gathering allow you to identify areas of strength, and weakness, and set targets and commitments to improve and move the dial, and create a roadmap for a more sustainable future. We reference global compacts and frameworks, in-country legal requirements, and best practice outcomes in order to score your business.
STAR Index allows you to Risk Assess your supply chain based on known ESG risks and deploy appropriate tools to help them map and manage these risks. Your suppliers will be taken through the same assessment process completed by your business, using a dedicated supplier portal and help at hand. They will have visibility of your targets and milestones, and what you are asking of them to help you deliver your desired outcomes.
