Diving deep, we help businesses to knock down the opaque walls of their supply chain to map and enable a transparent pathway for risk management. To ensure your due diligence efforts are effective, we work closely between your business and your suppliers to help identify, prevent, and mitigate any adverse impacts, and take sustainable action.
Global supply chains, have a heightened level of risk for businesses, due to the lack of transparency, differences in legislation, lack of control or influence over suppliers, and lack of environmental stewardship. Go Well help your business to identify and assess the risks in your supply chain, using our risk-based approach. We will then work with you and your suppliers to help mitigate and remedy any certain or potential risks, to take action, and ensure you are well informed for all future decision making.
With increasing stakeholder and legislative pressure across the globe, businesses need to be acting on modern slavery. We can help you develop a Modern Slavery Statement and policies that are aligned to global legislation, and support you to identify, avoid, and remediate modern slavery in your operations and supply chain.
Our inhouse specialist sourcing team can help you connect with exceptional suppliers of products or materials who have been verified with our best practice approach. We also develop training and educational materials to help your own teams be able to source sustainably with confidence.
To ensure your sustainable procurement goals are communicated effectively with all your stakeholders, Go Well can help you develop policies, such as a Supplier Code of Conduct, an Environmental Policy, a Responsible Purchasing Policy, and a Procurement Policy.
By following the three principles of the Circular Economy, and through our step-by-step approach, our support and guidance can help your business discover the benefits of circular procurement and circular business models. Go Well can help you take action by educating and upskilling your team and identifying the infrastructure and resources needed to help you succeed in this new economy.
