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 identified as having significant actual and potential negative 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.


Methodology

This metric is looking for the total number of suppliers identified as having significant potential negative impacts on society. A separate metric exists (G4-SO10-b1) for having identified actual negative impacts on society.

For WikiRate researchers:

  • If it will provide appropriate context on significant impacts, organizations are encouraged to break down the information requested by this Indicator by the location of the supplier and the significant actual and potential negative impact on society. If this information is included, please add to the comments.
