Our Human Rights Solutions

From compliance to purpose-driven due diligence
Regulations such as the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2010), the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014), the French Devoir de Vigilance law (2017), or the Modern Slavery Act Australia (2018) have turned the spotlight on human rights issues as a major financial and reputational risk for companies and their supply chains. Upcoming legislation, e.g. in the EU, will put further pressure on companies to ensure the protection of human rights in their operations and supply chains. Driven by ESG requirements, the SDGs, and similar voluntary non-financial criteria and goals, more and more companies are going beyond regulatory compliance by establishing proactive human rights-related practices.

Tracking human rights violations
Supply chains are often complex, with multiple players at each tier, and fragmented due to increased subcontracting. Victims of human trafficking and forced labor are especially at risk due to the lack of transparency in complex supply chains.

What is Human rights due diligence

Regulations like the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2010), the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014), the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015), the French Devoir de Vigilance law (2017), and the Modern Slavery Act Australia (2018) require companies to take action to tackle and eradicate human trafficking, slavery, child labor, and other forms of human rights abuses within their own operations and supply chains. In order to comply with this emerging set of regulations, companies will need to improve their due diligence processes and increase transparency regarding how they identify and respond to human rights issues and risks.

Identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks related to human rights abuses throughout businesses and across supply chains poses a huge challenge to manufacturing companies due to the intricate web of internal and external entities involved.

Furthermore, many companies rely on haphazardly grown systems to support their risk management efforts, using a combination of manual procedures, spreadsheets, and auditing/certification processes spread across various regions, corporate silos, and numerous suppliers and sub-suppliers.

Continuously monitoring activities and risk indicators as well as producing one consistent, reliable overall corporate view of the status and extent of human rights-related risks can be extremely difficult when using home-grown systems, tools and techniques and resulting in inefficient, unreliable and frustrating processes.

 

electronic Labor Rights Template (eLRT)
