In December 2019, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Responsible Labor Initiative (RLI), an Initiative of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA), launched a new toolkit to advance reporting on modern slavery. The aim of the toolkit is to provide guidance mainly for downstream companies on reporting on due diligence and supportive measures related to modern slavery across the value chain, at any level of reporting experience.
We are proud that iPoint’s electronic Labor Rights Template (eLRT) is listed and recommended as one of the tools which “can provide valuable input and guidance for
reporting on due diligence and policies, […]
reporting on progress of implementing due diligence mechanisms, […] and
reporting on effectiveness of actions”.
eLRT is a free, open-access, Excel-based, business-to-business reporting tool designed to support companies’ compliance with global human trafficking and modern-day slavery legislation. It facilitates the collection, analysis, communication, and reporting of critical anti-slavery measures through your supply and service chains in accordance with the regulatory and company-specific requirements. Launched in 2016, eLRT is based on a set of recent US, EU, and UK human trafficking and slavery laws and trade agreements directed at the private sector, including the E.U. Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014), the U.S. Federal Acquisition Regulation (2015), the U.K. Modern Slavery Act (2015), and the US Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (2017). In August 2019, we launched a simplified version of eLRT called eLRT Lite.
