Case study

Identifying environmental and human rights risks in a food supply chain

Marks & Spencer sought to understand the environmental and human rights risks in their complex food supply chains. Sancroft developed a bespoke risk assessment tool to enable the client to identify any gaps in their mitigation efforts.

Sancroft delivered an excellent risk assessment tool with a comprehensive yet pragmatic approach which has provided clear insights across a complex mix of sustainability issues and raw materials and sourcing countries we source from. The outputs have helped us both to understand where to focus our efforts and are informing our approach to developing mitigations.

The Sancroft team created a collaborative environment, bringing expertise and structured thinking which really helped drive alignment and high-quality delivery.
