Our improvement strategy helps you identify where you can make improvements within your operations and supply chains in order to monitor and report on modern slavery risks. Having a clear and long-term objective for continuous improvement is essential to making a lasting and positive impact.
We can help you to create a roadmap for enacting change both to your internal business systems, and how you monitor and assess the risk of modern slavery in your supply chain. We can also review your existing governance or risk management framework to assess and make recommendations on your current strategy.
Through our Modern Slavery Policy Framework, we can review your current policies to ensure they are in alignment with the government guidance. This involves inputing clauses that address modern slavery risks and related human rights violations. We can also advise and assist you in developing new policies that you may not have including a supplier code of conduct, remediation and grievance mechanism.
We can help you design a strategy to engage those suppliers with the highest risk who are most critical to your business and where you can leverage your influence for positive social change. This includes the development of a supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and engaging your suppliers through workshops and forums for mutual input.
The baseline for supplier engagement is in collaboration, in which the risks of modern slavery are not only addressed, but more resilient and responsible supply chains are developed.
