Industrial Equipment Supply Chain Sustainability Management

Industrial equipment supply chains are in scope of a variety of regulations and ESG requirements. With decades-long product life cycles, manufacturers need to keep up with changing regulations to keep their products operating, or risk defaulting on customer contracts, losing market access, or getting fined.

Being Proactive to Save Profits

Industrial equipment is complex, making regulatory changes difficult to navigate. With many requirements coming into force just six months after they’re announced, companies need a deep understanding of the process so they can get ahead of their risks.

Managing Risk in the Industrial Equipment Supply Chain

Without access to data from deep in the supply chain — particularly around the service and maintenance of products, which often have long life cycles — manufacturers may have difficulty complying with global regulations, risking loss of contracts and market access.

The Impacts of Non-Compliance

Due to the service and maintenance requirements on industrial equipment, manufacturers must safeguard a product’s market access long after it first enters the market. Non-compliance could result in disruption, lawsuits from customers, loss of market access, and reputational damage.
