This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers part of the information required by G4-SO9 - 'Percentage of new suppliers that were screened using criteria for impacts on society'.
This Indicator informs stakeholders about the percentage of suppliers selected or contracted subject to due diligence processes for impacts on society. Due diligence should be initiated as early as possible in the development of a new relationship with a supplier.
Significant potential negative impacts on society may be prevented or mitigated at the stage of structuring contracts or other agreements.
This metric is looking for the percentage of new suppliers that were screened using criteria for impacts on society.
For WikiRate researchers:
Identify the total number of new suppliers that the organization considered selecting or contracting with. If the organization reports this alongside the total number of new suppliers that were screened using criteria for impacts on society, a simple calculation can be done to obtain the percentage.
