WORKPLACE - Reporting & Actions

2.3.1 Reporting & Actions:
Reporting

Does the company report on risks or incidents regarding child labour?

Scoring options

  • 10 = Yes, the company publicly reports on risks or actual incidents of child labour in their own operations or for their suppliers.
  • 5 = The company publicly reports on risks of or actual incidents of labour or human rights violations in their own operations and for their suppliers. Child labour is not specifically reported on.
  • 0 = No, the company does not report on risks of or actual incidents of labour or human rights violations for its own operations or those of suppliers, or this reporting is not publicly available.

Why is this important?

To show commitment to a policy against child labour, it is important to be transparent about how it is being implemented and to what extent it is being complied with, so that any remedial action can be assessed against the prevalence of the issue.

About the scoring

A score of 10 is given if the company has a publicly available statement on e.g.:

  • Identified risks or incidents of child labour. N.B. that reporting on no cases or zero cases also receives a score of 10
  • Remedial action taken with identified cases

A statement on identified risks for child labour in certain geographies, products or suppliers, through e.g. a supplier assessment/audit procedure or impact assessment will also rate full points.

A score of 5 is given if the company has a publicly available statement on e.g.:

  • Identified risks or incidents of violated labour rights. N.B. that reporting on no cases or zero cases also receives a score of 5
  • Remedial action taken with identified cases
