About

After mapping out their supply chain, a company must then assess the risk of modern slavery occurring within it. This enables the company to take targeted action against modern slavery. This assessment can take place as part of an organisation’s wider approach to risk, but should be proportionate the company’s size, structure, location of supply chains and nature of business.

For further information on Risk Assessment please refer to the Home Office Guidance, pp. 34-35.

Methodology

Does the company’s statement include details whether the company has taken steps to assess risk of slavery or forced labour in its operations or supply chain? This metric is asking how a company assesses risks, not the identification of these risks. These risk assessment tools must be specific to modern slavery and go beyond general tools related to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

This can include:

  1. Requiring all new suppliers to complete risk-based questionnaires,

  2. The use of a specified risk management database or tool, such as Maplecroft, or Sedex, or

  3. Conducting research to assess risk. This can include using existing research such as the Global Slavery Index, the Corruption Perception Index, Human Rights Watch reports, Amnesty International Reports or reports produced by the UN.

Please note this metric refers to the tools or mechanisms that company’s use to assess risk. Identifying where risk is highest is covered under the metric: ‘MSA Identification of risks’

If a company outlines that it requires suppliers to complete questions, please select the “risk-based questionnaires” value.

If a company describes a tool, such as a risk matrix, or the use of software such as maplecroft or sedex, please select the “use of risk management tool or software” value.

If a company describes conducting its own research into its supply chain, please select “conducting research” value.

Please select as many values as apply.

If the business indicates it is developing risk management tools specific to modern slavery or planning to implement one in the future, please indicate “In Development”.

Where there are no details of risk assessment strategies, please give a “No” value.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the policy that you wish to include is not listed, please add a comment and flag the section for review.
