Leveraging information from external sources and supplier specific risks through NIKE’s own programs, we continually evaluate and update our systems to identify and address risks in our supply chain, including those related to forced labor.
In FY19, NIKE launched Verité’s CUMULUS Forced Labor Screen™, a new due diligence tool to
help identify risks related to the recruitment of foreign migrant workers by NIKE suppliers (p.4)
FY21, we have expanded use of the tool to all Tier 1 finished goods and strategic Tier 2 suppliers hiring foreign workers. The work aims to help us understand current recruitment practices more deeply and allows us to map overlaps in recruitment agents at both the facility and country level. This process helps NIKE to identify risks and opportunities to further support our suppliers and their recruiting agents in implementing best practices and serves as an ongoing tool to monitor the effectiveness of programs in addressing and minimizing risks related to forced labor (p.4)
