INDUSTRY / RAW MATERIALS

The increase in world population and economic growth contrasted with the instability in certain regions of the world and the emergence of global competition, are significantly changing the way we approach the need for raw materials in industrial and logistical development. Securing and supplying raw materials, seeking greater flexibility, improved industrial competitiveness and control of the supply chain are all crucial issues. First of all, the effects of environmental, sanitary and social aspects, along with strengthened regulatory constraints, particularly in the European Union, are contributing to the complexity of legal issues. In addition, the necessary reorganization of the logistics sector which will allow companies to remain competitive, is expected to lead to alliances among market players. In this context, BCTG has developed legal services tailored to corporations in these sectors.

Issues

  • Securing supplies of raw materials
  • Environmental, sanitary and social considerations
  • Anticipating strengthened regulatory constraints
  • Industrial companies’ ability to adapt in the context of global competition
  • Reducing costs in the context of strong competition
  • Adapting the supply chain to environmental changes and regulatory constraints (such as in pharmaceutical logistics)
  • Risks related to the supply chain
  • Environmental footprint
  • The proliferation of disputes related to delivering services
