Supply Chain Due Diligence Assessments

Streamlined due diligence assessments to determine if your supply chain partners have systems in place to meet the Environmental and Human Rights regulatory requirements.


The Environmental and Human Rights (Social) Supply Chain Due Diligence Assessments allow companies to measure how well their supply chain due diligence program meets regulatory requirements for identifying, preventing, mitigating, and remediating violations against human rights and environmental damage. The assessment identifies the needed elements of a supply chain due diligence program and defines what a good program looks like.

Assess Systems in Place

A Maturity-Based Assessment

The Supply Chain Due Diligence assessment measures maturity on a scale of 1 to 5 (most mature). Scores are generated and benchmarked. It provides an immediate picture of strengths and weaknesses of programs in place.

Third Party Assessments

Valuable for Third Parties

The assessments offer third parties the ability to evaluate their own programs and to have key suppliers complete it. An effective supply chain due diligence program requires a company to cascade their environmental and human rights requirements to their direct suppliers and beyond.

Scalable and Manageable

A Robust Platform

The Ethisphere platform provides a user-friendly interface for taking the assessment; and managing dozens, or even thousands of assessments. It offers efficient record-keeping and robust reporting capabilities.

How it Works

The Environmental and Human Rights Supply Chain Due Diligence Assessment covers 11 categories:

  • Supply Chain Mapping
  • Risk Assessment
  • Strategy & Goals
  • Policies, Procedures & Records
  • Responsible Supply Chain Engagement
  • Governance and Oversight
  • Training & Communication
  • Monitoring
  • Corrective Action & Collaborative Remediation
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Reporting & Disclosure

Are Your Supply Chain Partners Putting Your Organization at Risk?

The assessments measure a company’s program maturity level in managing each supply chain topic (Environmental or Human Rights). The assessments were developed by mapping the requirements of leading international supply chain due diligence laws and directives. Companies can see how their program aligns with the regulations and whether they have the systems in place to sustain their program. The resulting reports measure the company’s maturity and how it compares to the target maturity level for a good program and how it compares to the benchmark average of other companies.
