“In 2021, we continued to assess the environmental and social business aspects of our existing Americas suppliers, within our top 10 priority product categories (animal proteins, bottled water, cleaning supplies, cocoa, coffee, guest room amenities, paper products, seafood, sugar, textiles), via the EcoVadis sustainability assessment platform.”

“Taking advantage of the digital functions, the regional MIP Office is extracting information from Slavery & Trafficking Risk Template (STRT), an open-source template that collects and standardizes human trafficking risk and compliance-related data across supply chains, to include in the system. This process allows system users to access the same information, track and report human trafficking and related incidents, and validate information against a supplier’s disclosures. While the program is in its early phases, the Asia Pacific MIP Office aims to expand the program in 2022 and scale it globally to improve supply chain visibility, assess and mitigate risk, and ensure compliance with our Human Rights Policy.”
