Responsible Investment Transparency Report
Steward

A responsible investment policy is the commitment from a company to integrate environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors into their investment strategy and ownership practices. As part of assessing the ESG risk of an investment, the investor should take into account the social impacts that the investment may have on workforces. Workers in supply chains are known to be at high-risk of exploitation and poor working conditions. 


Methodology

To find the answer for the company you are researching, look in the company's responsible investment transparency report. The company may disclose their responsible investment policies and actions throughout different sections of the report. Search the report for the keywords 'supply chain', 'labor conditions' and 'worker rights'. 

If the company indicates that they have an investment policy and/or action that relates to improving labour conditions for supply chain workers, enter the 'Yes' value and add/cite the company's transparency report as a source. Please also include the page number and quote from the source. 

If the answer cannot be found in the company's transparency report, or the company is not a signatory to the PRI, then search on the company's website for any reference to policies or actions related to labour conditions in supply chains. If you cannot find any such policy or action, enter the 'No' value and add/cite the signatory database as a source.

Responsible investment transparency reports can be found on the Principles for Responsible Investment website here
