Does the company’s statement identify the greatest risks of modern slavery in its organisation and supply chain? The company must explicitly state the specific geographic regions, industries, resources or types of workforce where the risk is greatest.
The answer to this metric question may thus be one or several of these options:
Geographic - exposure may be greater in countries where protection against breaches of human rights are limited, particularly for migrant workers.
Industry - certain industries are more at risk of modern slavery than others. For example, those working in the extractives industry may differ to the risk in manufacturing.
Resource - some resources are more associated with modern slavery than others. For example, the extraction of mica or palm oil has been associated with high levels of debt bondage.
Workforce - some workers are more vulnerable to modern slavery than others. For example, temporary, seasonal or migrant workers may not be covered by local labour laws, or may not be as aware of their rights.
Please note this metric requires an explicit statement of the risk and where it occurs, it cannot apply to general statements about high levels of risk.
If a company lists countries or geographic regions (such as South Asia) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Geographic” value.
If a company identifies specific industries (such as the mining or apparel industry) where the risk of modern slavery is high, please select the “Industry” value.
If a company identifies specific resources (such as mica or palm oil) as being associated with modern slavery, please select the “Resource” value.
If a company describes a specific type of worker that is vulnerable to modern slavery, please select the “Workforce” value.
***Please select as many values as apply.***
If the business indicates if it will identify risks specific to modern slavery or is planning to do so in the future, please indicate “In Development”.
Where there are no details of specific risks, please give a “No” value.
For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the type of risk that you wish to include is not listed among the answer options, please add a comment and flag the section for review.
* Note on choosing the Year of your answer
Read the MSA Statement carefully to find out what year it covers. When a statement is referring to a Financial Year (FY) ending in Q1, it should be labeled with the previous year.
Statement for FY2018/19 ending in March 2019 = 2018
Statement for FY2018/19 ending in April 2019 (or later) = 2019
