Know the Chain – See which companies do and do not have statements under the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2014)

In 2010, California enacted the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB-657).  The Act requires certain businesses to disclose the efforts they are making, if any, to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from their supply chains.  KnowTheChain was created to promote greater transparency and dialogue around this issue – and it provides a record of which companies do and do not yet have statements under the SB-657 Act.  

In January 2014, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre and KnowTheChain separately approached the 129 companies on the site that had not yet been identified as having a SB-657 statement, encouraging them to adopt one.  Of those 129 companies, only 44 responded (a response rate of 34.1%, which contrasts with our average global response rate of over 70%).  Some of these have now adopted a statement, others said they are preparing one, and others indicated that they are not subject to the Act.  A total of 85 companies remained silent

Below are all the companies that have posted SB-657 statements to date, those that have not, and also those that have indicated that they are not subject to the law.  (Further information on KnowTheChain’s criteria for including a statement is here).  This information was updated as of February 11, 2014.  Although it is not possible to definitively determine all of the companies that are subject to the law with current public information, KnowTheChain has published this dataset to bring transparency to supply chain practices.  KnowTheChain anticipates that its public dataset will continue to grow, and encourages all companies to make public their policies to address the risks of slavery in their supply chains.  If any company would like to get in touch regarding including or updating their statement please contact KnowTheChain: [email protected] with a cc to [email protected].

Note: Partners in KnowTheChain are ATEST, CAST, Free The Slaves, Humanity United, Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, Made in a Free World, Not for Sale, Responsible Sourcing Network, Sustainalytics, Tronie Foundation, Verité, Vital Voices and World Vision.
