KnowTheChain: Ranking companies' efforts to address forced labour in their supply chains

See all tags

KnowTheChain is a resource for companies and investors who need to understand and address forced labor risks within their supply chains.

In 2020/2021 KnowTheChain benchmarked 180 companies in three sectors.

Each benchmark also includes company scorecards with company specific recommendations and a full data set.

In 2019, KnowTheChain published investor briefings on the construction and forestry sectors. In addition, a cross-sector findings report compares findings across the three sectors, in particular on recruitment, worker voice, lower tier due diligence, and performance of Asia based companies. It also includes an appendix with good practice examples for each sector and each indicator of the benchmark methodology.

In 2018 KnowTheChain benchmarked more than 120 global companies across three sectors: the information and communications technology sector, food and beverage sector, and apparel and footwear sector. 

In 2017, KnowTheChain undertook an analysis across the three sectors, reviewed its benchmark methodology, and evaluated to what extent companies address forced labor risks specifically in sugarcane and leather supply chains. 

In 2016, KnowTheChain ranked 60 of the largest global companies in the information and communications technologyfood and beverage sector, and apparel and footwear sectors on their efforts to address forced labor and human trafficking risks in their supply chains.
