ESG Reporting Software Creates a Deep View Of Supply Chains
Assent offers the first complete ESG solution with enough supply chain depth and expertise, giving complex manufacturers all the actionable insights and ESG reporting in one place.
Your One-Stop Shop for Supply Chain ESG Reporting
Your supply chain is complex, but managing your ESG data within it shouldn’t be. To drive a significant impact on the world and your community, you must go beyond internal operations and look deeper into your supply chain to find and disclose risks, document remediation, and build a program to continuously improve performance.
Assent guides you through every step of the supply chain ESG workflow with the right technology, support, and expertise — from initial supplier engagement to writing your corporate sustainability reports.
The Pressure for Supply Chain ESG Is Growing
Sustainability and ESG reporting are essential to protecting market access, reducing reputational risk, and meeting customer and investor requirements, but gathering the data you need to get started can feel overwhelming.
As a manufacturer, most ESG risk happens outside your four walls. Yet you’re held accountable for the total footprint of your supply chain any time customers, investors, and ESG scoring agencies evaluate your business.
Supply Chains Were Never Built With Sustainability In Mind
You want to build great products and make a positive impact on the world while doing it, but the supply chains your products and parts depend on were never built with sustainability in mind. It’s difficult and time-consuming to collect ESG data across hundreds or thousands of suppliers.
