Our key takeaway: KnowTheChain has released two benchmarks comparing companies’ performance on tackling forced labour risks and impacts in the food and beverage, and apparel and footwear sectors. The results are a mixed bag, with overall scores indicating that companies are stagnating or moving very slowly towards ensuring meaningful outcomes for workers in the context of tackling forced labour in global supply chains. In particular, companies are failing to identify and address how their procurement practices are contributing to an environment conducive to low wages and exploitative working conditions; failing to engage workers, trade unions and civil society organisations in the design, development, implementation, and monitoring of measures taken to address forced labour; and failing to provide concrete and effective remedy for workers. What can companies do? KnowTheChain recommends that companies start by (1) adopting a worker-centric approach to due diligence; (2) providing access to remedies that will secure meaningful outcomes for workers; and (3) proactively seek to lift up worker voice in the workplace.
