BUILDING A MAP OF PERFORMANCE FROM BRAND TO MINE

Through Vine, users can visualize strategic raw material supply chains, map and connect suppliers and sub-suppliers, while tracking and comparing individual supplier ESG performance.

Users can simultaneously work with RCS Global auditors to build full transparency in a new or unique supply chain on their own private platform and join existing programs with access to entire supply chains that include full audit data and supplier performance scores and insights.

ESG performance data on the platform is based on audits and verified by RCS Global Group’s industry leading audit practice. Performance is pegged against internationally recognized standards including the OECD Due Diligence Guidance, Modern Slavery Act, IRMA critical requirements for responsible mining and many more.

Benchmark and report against every major global
responsible sourcing standard

Visualise entire supply chains

As the world’s leading responsible sourcing and responsible mining audit specialists in battery metals and wider raw materials, RCS Global Group is also using Vine to build an industry-wide database of suppliers across all core battery inputs.

With over 500 verified suppliers already on the platform and others being constantly added, Vine is rapidly scaling towards becoming the most comprehensive ESG supplier performance database in the battery sector.

New functionality is also being developed to expand and strengthen the platform into a full ESG due diligence
management tool.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT

RCS Global’s expert team of auditors are relied upon by world leading corporations at all tiers of the value chain to deliver certifications and verified audits for all current responsible sourcing programs worldwide.

Validated audit data fixes the ‘oracle’ problem that many blockchain and ESG performance platforms have – where data is based on unverified or poor data – the database itself has little use. By using verified data as the foundations for the platform, can provide insights that can be relied upon for analysis, decision making and public reporting.
