Due to the extent of globalisation today, a company is exposed to reputational risks from its supply chain even though its own operations are impeccable. A company is expected to use its business influence to exert pressure on its supply chain to adopt socially responsible business practices, on top of treating their foreign partners fairly.


GC works on behalf of our clients to ensure their partners share their commitment to CSR, improve their partners’ CSR position and eliminate CSR risks arising from their partners’ operations, look for alternative partners should their existing ones persist in their negative behaviour, and check that our clients do not use any advantages arising from their size and financial positions to deal with their partners unfairly.
