“Ranking of 20 Information and Communications Technology Firms on Supply Chain Forced Labor” – Know the Chain – June 22, 2016

On June 22, 2016 Know the Chain released its “first benchmark findings report on the efforts of Information and Communications Technology companies to mitigate forced labor in their supply chains.

While the benchmark found that the ICT sector is showing some commitment and action, the overall scores make it clear there is still far more to be done. Of the 20 global ICT companies evaluated in seven categories, the average score was 39 out of a possible 100 points.

Eighteen of the 20 companies have a public commitment to addressing forced labor, showing that they recognize the importance of the issue, but far fewer have the policies and practices in place to do so.”
