SOVEREIGNTY - Value Chain Dependencies

Serving European Private companies and investors in the new international trade environment.

Whaydon services focus on "industrial sovereignty", defined as a reduction in foreign dependencies for production, re-industrialization at the national level rather than externalized production, and a European vision for ecologic transition. We have developed  a unique matrix of the dependencies and fragilities of our clients' value chain, through a triple lens ( competitors, consumers, public policies). This allows to suggest the best tailored solutions to reduce solutions throughout your value chain.
