What can we tell you about us?

Well, STAR Index is the culmination of many things. These include years of supply chain experience, managing risk assessments and also one really great idea.

Over 15 years experience

Adding value to your organization

Since 2005 NED Holdings Group has been helping businesses transform. Transform their supply chain management needs and risk assessments into something that adds value to their organisation. Our background is in industry. So our key drivers as a business are what was important to us then; intuitive software driven by subject matter expertise, system functionality that works, and also great customer service.

For over 15 years we have worked with blue chip customers as well as their complex supply chains. We helped with delivering robust supplier and also raw material risk management platforms. Every year we add to our capabilities. In 2019, Rick Sanderson met Stephen Whyte. He pitched the idea of STAR, a platform to manage the wider horizons of ESG challenges. Later that year STAR Index was launched.

The STAR Index team has a wealth of experience in Supply Chain Management, Supplier Support and also Risk Assessment. Each team member brings their skills to enhance and furthermore strengthen the STAR Index offering and supporting our Partners.

Our policies

At STAR Index we passionately believe in upholding the integrity of supply chains

We are therefore committed to living these values ourselves, with a priority of eradicating any forms of slavery at the heart of our drive for integrity. STAR Index supports the basic and fundamental human rights of all individuals. It does not condone any form of modern slavery, human trafficking, child labour, or exploitation in any form within its business and supply chains.

We adopt a zero-tolerance policy to any human rights abuses and we have worked extensively with NGOs such as Unseen UK to build capacity and ensure our employees understand and adhere to this policy.
