Risk Index Report

The Index helps you, as a sourcing professional, understand the risks to which your supply chains are exposed. You can use the CIPS Risk Index Quarterly Report as an early warning of changes in the macro environment that may affect suppliers and your supply chain. You can then drill down from a global, quarterly, headline figure to a regional and country level perspective, enabling you to develop robust risk management strategies and mitigate against risk.

This report is composed of multiple unique assessments of 132 countries (comprising 90+% of global economic activity) across nine categories, on a monthly basis. The individual country scores are then aggregated to calculate a global supply risk score.
