How does Ravara Work?

Ravara features validated companies who have completed a rigorous vetting process. Based on our extensive experience supporting responsible sourcing of minerals from high risk regions and sectors, Levin Sources’ experts, supported by proprietary algorithms, assess compliance gaps, check the quality of your management systems and risk controls, and ensure your practices meet the standard – and your business partners’ expectations. We answer the critical questions: Does your business meet the mark? If not, how do you get there?

We offer a detailed assessment of your compliance with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals for Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas (OECD Due Diligence Guidance). Our offering is continually expanding, including mineral and sector specific standards in diamonds, gold, cobalt, ASM, industrial mining, minerals trading jewellery, green technology, and more.

What Problems are we Solving Generally?

How We Help

Good risk management in business relationships always matters. In a period of economic upheaval and uncertainty it is even more essential to manage risk well, but this likely requires extra effort as that disruption generates new risks.

  • If you are facing supply chain disruption or foraying into new markets, we help you vet new business partners quickly, affordably and reliably.
  • We help you reduce the cost of carrying out regular due diligence on your existing business partners.
  • Our internal audit of your compliance with relevant standards helps you correct issues and be audit-ready.
  • Our due diligence team comprises people of diverse backgrounds with country, issue, sector and mineral specific expertise.

Downstream businesses often need to evidence compliance with multiple standards to respond to business partners’ needs. This is time consuming and costly.

  • We act as a one-stop shop repository of compliance and risk management evidence for business partners.
  • We save you time and effort finding and sharing all relevant information with auditors and business partners.

What Problems do our Supply Chain Due Diligence Tools solve?

Due diligence can be a barrier to getting business done

  • We make the due diligence process easy and cost effective for you and your supply chain partners
  • The result: you can do business more quickly and with confidence.

Good due diligence may require multidisciplinary or local knowledge to uncover your hidden vulnerabilities; you don’t know what you don’t know.

  • Our goal is to help you understand your risks and what to do about them, so your risk controls are fit for purpose and effective.
  • We help you identify your blind spots

Check box due diligence may get you past an audit, but it won’t mitigate your risks leaving you exposed.

  • Our due diligence assessments will flag issues that require actions by you or your business partners.
  • You can use the findings to mitigate risks effectively.

Ineffective due diligence undermines confidence in business decisions, may generate liabilities and can destroy value.

  • Our supply chain due diligence tools are tried and tested with industry leaders and SMEs.

Due diligence can be cumbersome and costly, especially if you’re sourcing from higher risk provenances or if your supply chains have been disrupted.

  • Our supply chain due diligence tools were designed to make sourcing from higher risk provenances such as Conflict-Affected and High Risk Areas (CAHRAs) and Artisanal and Small-scale Miners (ASM) more feasible.
  • Our goal is to be inclusive of responsible producers operating in tough places - if the bar is too high they can’t participate; if the bar is too low you may be carrying unacceptable risk.
