However, the members do not only focus on the future. They also look back. What have they achieved in the past year to make their supply chains more sustainable? What measures have they been able to implement successfully and what goals have they achieved? All these aspects are documented in the progress report.
For the verification and quality assurance of the risk analysis as well as the set objectives and the reported progress, an in-person assessment meeting is held, which is prepared and conducted by an external service provider as well as by the Partnership Secretariat.
This will address in particular the following questions: Are the objectives appropriate to prevent or mitigate the most serious risks? Are the objectives and measures derived in a meaningful and comprehensible way from the risk analysis and the progress report? All reports are then published here .
