About

Understanding where the risk of modern slavery occurs, and assessing its level of importance, ensures that companies are able to put the most appropriate remedies in place. Disclosing in a modern slavery statement where this risk is helps to illustrate the effectiveness of risk assessment tools outlined in the previous metric.

For further information on this metric please refer to the Home Office Guidance on page 34-35 and Walk Free Foundation Guidance, pp.18-19.

Methodology

Does the company’s statement identify the greatest risks of modern slavery in its organisation and supply chain? The company must explicitly state the specific regions, industries or products where the risk is greatest.

This can refer to:

  1. Geographic - exposure may be greater in countries where protection against breaches of human rights are limited, particularly for migrant workers.

  2. Industry - certain industries are more at risk of modern slavery than others. For example, those working in the extractives industry may differ to the risk in manufacturing.

  3. Resource - some resources are more associated with modern slavery than others. For example, the extraction of mica or palm oil has been associated with high levels of debt bondage.

Please note this metric requires an explicit statement of the risk and where it occurs, it cannot apply to general statements about high levels of risk.

If a company lists countries or geographic regions (such as South Asia) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Geographic” value.

If a company identifies specific industries (such as the mining or apparel industry) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Industry” value.

If a company identifies specific resources (such as mica or palm oil) as being associated with modern slavery, please select the “Resource” value.

Please select as many values as apply.

If the business indicates if it will identify risks specific to modern slavery or is planning to do so in the future, please indicate “In Development”.

Where there are no details of specific risks, please give a “No” value.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the type of risk that you wish to include is not listed, please add a comment and flag the section for review.
