Robust ESG risk assessment

EiQ, LRQA’s supply chain intelligence platform, empowers companies to conduct robust environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk assessment using insights derived from on-the-ground audit data and trusted civil society sources.

EiQ offers risk analysis for sourcing geographies, products and services, and generates risk scorecards for individual sites.

ESG risk ratings are increasingly vital as they facilitate a risk-based approach to managing ESG issues and support investors in identifying material sustainability issues that can impact financial performance. 

Our supply chain risk ratings approach

Reliability and consistency

EiQ addresses the current gap in data reliability and consistency by leveraging granular, onsite data and investor-grade analytics. 

Global coverage

Our platform generates risk ratings for more than 150 countries and regions, covering 350+ products and services.

Real-world assessments

Risk ratings are based on over 20,000 real-world assessments per year—covering over 30 ESG issue areas across five key pillars: Labour, Health & safety, Environment, Business ethics, and Management systems. 

Enhanced risk analysis 

Supplier scorecards within EiQ provide enhanced risk analysis for individual suppliers and vendors. 

Exposing risk

Scorecards assess sites based on their degree of risk exposure, such as if it operates in a high-risk region, and a site's risk management, which is derived from each site’s audit performance.

Risk insights

Whether you seek insights into high-risk areas, want to identify suitable vendors, or aim to improve your responsible sourcing programme, EiQ's risk assessment provides a comprehensive and reliable solution tailored to your needs.
