Environmental and Social Governance Consulting - Social Risk Due Diligence
Stakeholder Engagement - Labour Monitoring and Labour Welfare Consulting
Your organisation and its operations both influence and are influenced by the wider social framework in which they take place. Labour and human rights violations can occur at any point in your supply chain; environmental degradation, corruption or the impact of social and economic marginalisation not only cause serious harm to the community, but can make business unsustainable in the long run.
Environmental and social governance consulting
Control Risks environmental and social governance programmes have significant benefits beyond the reputational and ethical. Useful as a gauge of governance and risk management processes, ESG programmes can be an excellent long term framework to support value creation by mitigating long term, sometimes existential risks.
Social risk due diligence
We provide detailed analysis and evaluation of your operations and relationships in their social and political context, and against the backdrop of international human rights standards.
We can help you work with your local stakeholders to understand your positive and negative impacts, gain visibility on grievances and find ways to maintain positive engagement. Control Risks has long experience mapping local stakeholders and engaging with them in ways that lead to productive relationships for both sides.
By engaging with all relevant stakeholders we can help you fully assess all social risks and build mitigation programs that are holistic, synchronised across business functions and therefore sustainable for the long term.
