Supply chain sustainability management solutions provider Assent Inc. announced today the launch of Assent ESG, a new ESG workflow solution targeting complex manufacturers, and aimed at enabling them to stay ahead of evolving ESG standards and regulations.
According to Assent, the new solution comes as complex manufacturers – in industries ranging from industrial manufacturing, electronics, and medical device, to automotive and aerospace and defense – face increased market pressures from investors, and customers for accurate ESG supply chain reporting and management, and as the ESG reporting landscape is rapidly evolving with growing reporting requirements.
Andrew Waitman, CEO of Assent, said:
“Assent’s ESG solution is a major milestone for complex manufacturers to meet and exceed evolving ESG standards and regulations. Our solution is a guide to supply chain sustainability, empowering clients with the defensible data they need to credibly report on ESG, maintain market access and create a competitive advantage across the industry.”
The new SaaS-based solution includes enhanced global supply chain reporting capabilities across critical topics such as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, child labor, human slavery and trafficking, and other key sustainability topics. Assent ESG is aligned with standards including OECD, TCFD, GRI, and SASB aims to enable complex manufactures to proactively prepare for new requirements through comprehensive guidance across their entire supply chain ESG workflow, from initial supplier engagement through to sustainability reporting.
Key features of the solution include configurable ESG supplier survey topics, interactive dashboards providing visibility into supplier risk scores, the ability to drill down into specific ESG metrics, and plug-and-play sustainability report templates aligned to industry standards. The solution also includes corrective action capabilities where deficiencies, issues or nonconformance are identified.
“Companies that proactively prepare for forthcoming due diligence mandates stand to gain from supply chain insights and market advantages, and Assent is the only one in the market providing a complete ESG solution and expertise that goes deep in the supply chain.”
