Supply chain mapping helps your business establish traceability and knowledge of your supply chain, which is crucial to making long term business decisions and puts you in a position of strength when developing policy, communicating to your customers or when reporting performance.

BLC have developed our Leather Supply Chain Mapping Product and now offer three support packages designed to match your business needs:

  • Package 3 – Light Touch Questionnaire
    Designed for those with a mapping system in place for other materials who would like to generate data on their leather supply chain.

Package 1 – Comprehensive Mapping Project

BLC have developed the leather supply chain mapping tool to help you understand what your supply chain looks like and where the connections are. Our tool includes an interactive geographical map identifying locations and functions within your supply chain footprint. We use our expertise of the leather industry to complete a risk analysis of the top five hotspots of activity within your leather supply chain. BLC will produce a report and provide an onsite presentation of your information to your chosen internal stakeholders. You can use this information to make informed sustainable sourcing decisions, respond to scrutiny and ensure compliance to legislation.

Package 2 – Expert Support Package

BLC will apply our knowledge and expertise to help you generate and get the most out of your leather supply chain data.  We will design and produce a tailored supply chain questionnaire for you and conduct a sense check on the data you get back using our expertise of the leather industry. Further we will conduct a risk analysis on the regions where you have a high concentration of suppliers considering issues such as environmental and social sensitivities, legislation and governance. BLC can offer this to BLC Members at a discounted rate.

Package 3 – Light Touch Questionnaire

BLC can support you to develop a questionnaire to send to your suppliers in order to map your leather supply chain. This will be designed to ensure you get the highest rate of return possible and that you ask the right questions to map the leather supply chain. The product would include a visit to your site to understand the particular elements of your supply chain you would like to map. BLC can offer this to BLC Members at a discounted rate.
