This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers the information required by G4-LA14 - `Percentage of new suppliers that were screened using labor practices criteria`.
This Indicator informs stakeholders about the percentage of suppliers selected or contracted subject to due diligence processes for labor practices. Due diligence should be initiated as early as possible in the development of a new relationship with a supplier.
Significant potential negative impacts for labor practices may be prevented or mitigated at the stage of structuring contracts or other agreements.
To calculate the the percentage of new suppliers that were screened using labor practices criteria - G4-LA14-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 labor practices criteria.
Labor practices criteria may include:
- Employment practices
- Health and safety practices
- Incidents (such as of verbal, psychological, physical, or sexual abuse, coercion or harassment)
- Industrial relations
