Top Reasons to Hire a JVR Consultant for Achilles Accreditation

For businesses operating within the construction, oil and gas, utilities, and rail sectors, it is critically important to achieve—and maintain—Achilles accreditation. Achilles supports a network of over 175,000 suppliers across these high-risk sectors by ensuring they meet or exceed the standards of more than 800 buyers across the UK who seek to minimise cost, compliance, and risk in their procurement procedures.

Businesses are held to increasingly stringent standards by stakeholders across these industries, who are tasked with ensuring their supply chains adhere to the highest calibre—not only in terms of provided value, performance, and regulatory compliance, but also in their ethical and environmental practices. By achieving Achilles accreditation, vendors working in support of these industries can demonstrate to their customers their commitment to maintaining the values demanded of them.
