About

This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers part of the information required by G4-HR10 - `Percentage of new suppliers that were screened using human rights criteria`.

​This Indicator informs stakeholders about the percentage of suppliers selected or contracted subject to the organization’s human rights due diligence processes. 

The UN Protect, Respect and Remedy: a Framework for Business and Human Rights (107) has confirmed the expectation that organizations should respect human rights throughout their activities and relationships with others. 

Human rights due diligence should be initiated as early as possible in the development of a new relationship with a supplier. Significant potential negative human rights impacts may be prevented or mitigated at the stage of structuring contracts or other agreements.

Methodology

To calculate the percentage of new suppliers that were screened using human rights criteria - G4-HR10-a:

  • ​Identify the total number of new suppliers that the organization considered selecting or contracting with. 
  • Identify the total number of new suppliers that were screened using human rights criteria. 
  • Calculate the percentage.

Human rights criteria may include:

  • Child labor
  • Discrimination
  • Forced or compulsory labor
  • Freedom of association and collective bargaining
  • Indigenous rights
  • Security practices
