The STAR Index™ platform enables businesses to manage supply chain risk with clarity and confidence using data to develop actionable insight across the full scope of ESG challenges. The new strategic partnership with Intellync combines STAR Index’s broad and holistic knowledge with the deep specialist expertise of Intellync to address current net-zero and scope 3 challenges and embeds it within a seamless technical solution that assesses risk and facilitates improvement across all the ESG issues agri-food businesses are facing.
The combination of STAR Index and Intellync’s cloud hosted software solutions provides a single cockpit view of risk, uniformity of reporting and data capture, removing complexity and reducing resource requirements, solving todays problem of carbon submission whilst also future proofing agri-food businesses wider ESG challenges by assessing all areas of risk such as human rights, slavery, biodiversity and animal welfare.
Whilst the agri-food sector are, rightly, laser focussed on addressing their scope 3 commitments – taking a holistic approach means that businesses will benefit in the medium to long term by utilising an embedded approach to ESG risk. In essence this approach future proofs the business and ensures they stay one step ahead of legislation, regulation and competition whilst genuinely protecting the planet and people whilst responding to consumer demand. The partnership creates a powerful combination of expertise to address today’s challenges as well as anticipating future market demands.
