WORKPLACE - Implementation
1.2.3 Supplier assessment
Does the company conduct a supplier assessment/audits with regards to their impacts on children’s rights in the workplace?
- 10: Yes, the company conducts supplier assessments/audits with regards to their impacts on children’s rights in the workplace (i.e. child labour)
- 5: Yes, the company conducts supplier assessments with regards to their impacts on human rights in the workplace and wider sustainability issues
- 0: No, the company does not conduct supplier assessment with regards to their impacts on children’s rights
To be able to monitor an issue such as child labour among suppliers, it is of vital importance to show to them that it’s an issue they will be measured against.
What are we looking for?
Clear description of a child rights issue, i.e. child labour, being one of topics that suppliers are assessed against. We’re expecting that the company describes the process for supplier assessments, and which issues they focus on.
