Join Verisk Maplecroft at the 2017 EICC Responsible Electronics Annual Conference

Verisk Maplecroft will be joining the world’s leading electronics companies at the EICC (Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition) annual Responsible Electronics Conference in Santa Clara, California. Our team will be on hand between the 17-18 October to help delegates make the most of the EICC Risk Assessment Tool, which features Verisk Maplecroft’s risk analytics, and to talk through the latest data innovations being implemented within supply chain risk assessments.

The Responsible Electronics Conference is the EICC’s biggest event of the year. It focuses on corporate social responsibility in the global electronics supply chain, with top speakers from industry, civil society and government. 

In our first year as an official EICC Vendor Member, we will also present at the conference. Erin McVeigh, Head of Americas Consulting at Verisk Maplecroft, will feature on a panel discussing: The Changing Landscape of Risk Assessments. In this session, Erin will give her expert insights on shifting the fundamentals of supply chain risk assessments and how building a foundation based on reliable, trusted data and new technologies can empower companies to not only identify and mitigate key risks, but also create value.

Delegates can join us at our booth, where we can provide training for the EICC Risk Assessment Tool. The tool links Verisk Maplecroft’s unique portfolio of global risk indices to the EICC Code of Conduct, allowing members to quickly and easily access a high-level risk assessment of EICC code-related risks for their entire supply chain. 

Our team can also help members understand how using additional data in supply chain risk assessments can streamline responsible sourcing programmes and enable better, risk-adjusted decisions.

Key issues Verisk Maplecroft can help with:

• Achieving instant transparency of inherent supplier and facility risk using trusted data
• Developing a data-led audit strategy based on risk, product, spend, materiality and criticality
• Integrating SAQ and audit data to better understand risk management proficiency
• Implementing robust risk mitigation strategies that result in proactive data-led business decisions 

Verisk Maplecroft will also be at the CFSI Annual Conference, which follows on immediately after Responsible Electronics on 18-19 October. The Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CSFI) annual conference brings together experts and practitioners from industry, governments, and civil society from around the globe to discuss strategies, programs, and emerging issues as they relate to sourcing minerals from conflict-affected and high-risk areas. 

CFSI delegates are encouraged to drop by our booth where we would be happy to talk them through our Commodity Risk Service. This provides industry leading data on 40 hard commodities utilised in the electronics sector, including the 3TG Conflict Minerals and those necessary for the production of lithium-ion batteries. Each assessment quantifies 20 environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. This enables companies to generate instant and actionable risk profiles for raw materials to give them a rich picture of risk in the lower reaches of their supply chain.
