The CSR Risk Check

Customers, governments and civil society organisations increasingly expect companies to do business with respect for people and planet. Companies are demanded to conduct due diligence as required by (upcoming) legislation or the OECD Guidelines for Responsible Business Conduct and the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights. Part of due diligence is risk management ; companies are required to identify, prevent and mitigate CSR risks in their supply chain, both upstream and downstream. The CSR Risk Check is an online tool designed to assist you in identifying CSR risks . The tool offers you a quick and straightforward overview of potential CSR risks that you may encounter in your supply chain. Tool usage is free of charge. 

MVO Nederland

The CSR Risk Check was developed by MVO Nederland. MVO Nederland drives the transition to a sustainable economy with the largest entrepreneurial movement in Europe. This transition requires a shift from the current system. The business community is uniquely positioned to promptly and effectively respond to changing circumstances. MVO Nederland believes that by collaborating with them, good results can be achieved the quickest. MVO Nederland aims to have a minimum of twenty percent of the Dutch economy to be involved in the sustainable economy by 2025. This sustainable economy is based on principles that go beyond financial considerations and operates within the boundaries of nature and society. To measure progress on this ambition, MVO Nederland has developed the New Economy Index (NEx). This index consists of seven themes in which the sustainable business community is active. The CSR Risk Checker falls under the theme ‘transparent supply chains’. The tool was developed in collaboration with Concept7.  

Collaboration partners

The CSR Risk Check is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For the German Version of the tool, we collaborate with UPJ, being funded by the German Helpdesk on Business & Human Rights at the Agency for Business & Economic Development, and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs. MVO Nederland is the legal owner of the CSR Risk Check and is solely responsible for the collection and processing of all data.
