This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers part of the information required by G4-SO10 - 'Number of suppliers subject to assessments for impacts on society'.
This Indicator informs stakeholders about an organization’s awareness of significant actual and potential negative impacts on society in the supply chain.
Processes to identify and assess significant actual and potential negative impacts on society in the supply chain may enable an organization to address them.
This metric is looking for the total number of suppliers subject to assessments for impacts on society.
Assessments for impacts on society may include the Aspects under the Society sub-Category.
Assessments may be made against agreed performance expectations which were set and communicated prior to the assessment.
Assessments may be informed by audits, contractual reviews, two-way engagement, and grievance and complaint mechanisms.
