Country Risk Mapping

The objective of the Country Risk Mapping is to assess the risk perception at a country level on four aspects which guide the Maersk Responsible Procurement (RP) programme - Corruption, Environment, Labour Practices and Human Rights. This is then used along with high risk categories to identify the high risk category-country combination and to drive focused RP compliance for high risk suppliers in high risk countries.

Multiple sources of publicly available studies and assessments were used to arrive at the risk ratings. The sources are given below

Environmental Performance Index (EPI)

Corruption Performance Index (CPI)

Labour Index (LI)

Human Rights Risk Index (HRRI)

How did we rate the country risk as high, medium, low?

To ensure equal distribution of countries across high, medium, and low ratings for individual risk areas, they were equally distributed into 3 categories, based on overall score in individual risk areas.

High Risk

If a country is ranked as 'high risk' on at least one of the 4 risk areas.

Medium Risk

If a country is ranked as 'medium' or 'low' risk across 4 risk areas and has at least 2 or more risk areas ranked as 'medium'

Low Risk

If a country is ranked as 'medium' or 'low' risk across 4 risk areas and has at least 3 or more risk areas ranked as 'low'.
