CA-TISCA benchmarking report
Find out whether your company’s Anti-Slavery compliance has improved.
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (“CA-TISCA”) is the first disclosure law to address human trafficking and slavery within the global marketplace. CA-TISCA requires every retail seller and manufacturer who does business in the state of California and has annual worldwide gross receipts exceeding $100 million “to disclose its efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from its direct supply chain for tangible goods offered for sale.”
Eligible companies have to post this information on their websites “with a conspicuous and easily understood link to the required information placed on the business' homepage.” (California Civil Code Section §1714.43). With California being the 8th largest economy in the world, CA-TISCA affects companies with a combined revenue of $48.4 trillion in 2016, among them many Fortune 1000 companies.
In 2015, not-for-profit organization Development International released the first comprehensive benchmarking report which evaluated 1,504 brands on their anti-slavery disclosure compliance under CA-TISCA.
A new study, funded by iPoint, was conducted in conjunction with DI. 1,961 brands were evaluated against their disclosure compliance based on the law’s Risk Verification, Audit, Certification, Internal accountability and Training (VACIT) framework as a compliance matrix. In addition, the study recorded to what extent companies reported affirmative practice on these criteria. This second comprehensive benchmarking study on corporate anti-slavery compliance and action under CA-TISCA, also featuring a foreword from Julia Ormond of ASSET, can be downloaded here on this website.
