Social Risk Due Diligence - Social Risk and Impact Assessment
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Consulting
Labour Monitoring and Labour Welfare Risk

 

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.
 

Stakeholder engagement

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.
 

Labour monitoring and labour welfare consulting

Businesses are increasingly being held to account to ensure they play their part in tackling modern slavery by safeguarding the welfare of workers in their supply chain. Extra-territorial legislation requiring disclosure of a company’s progress on mitigating these risks is becoming common.

Our emphasis is not just on monitoring for transgressions, but in building programmes that reduce to a minimum the potential for welfare violations.

Under President Rodrigo Duterte, the country has launched an ambitious "Build, Build, Build" infrastructure program and a strategic pivot to China. But how much has really changed?

When emerging markets stop growing: Bangladesh and COVID-19

Bangladesh has come a long way in the past decade, achieving record growth that has averaged between 6-8% in the past five years. This has made Bangladesh something of a darling amongst foreign investors comfortable with frontier markets. However, the competence of its unique government, which is effectively styled after one sole leader, Sheikh Hasina, is being tested by the COVID-19 crisis.
