Evaluating due diligence management systems against external expectations

Having a supply chain ESG due diligence programme in place to identify, monitor, and manage risks is business critical – and increasingly, is a formal requirement in international legislation, including the European Union (EU) Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CS3D), Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), and the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG).

The LRQA management diagnostic process evaluates due diligence management systems against external expectations and requirements (e.g., investor expectations, regulations, peer companies practices, and industry trends). It leverages supply chain data insights from EiQ (LRQAs supply chain intelligence platform) to ensure recommendations are aligned with your company’s supply chain risk exposure and presence in key sourcing markets.
