The Global GreenTag Modern Slavery Transparency Declaration (Global GreenTag MSD) is soon to be released, following a Stakeholder Review Process. At its core, this world’s first product level Modern Slavery Transparency Declaration addresses a profound humanitarian problem and need to help minimise the conditions of Modern Slavery prevailing in global supply chains.
Possibilities of Modern Slavery occurring in supply chains – issues of ethical labour sourcing and social impacts – have always been a requirement for assessment of products under the Global GreenTag International Product Certification Standard. Global GreenTag International has been actively involved with a number of interest bodies in recent years to bring stronger focus to the problem of Modern Slavery and was one of a core group of companies that pledged support behind the Australian Human Rights Commission’s call for Modern Slavery legislation in late 2017.
- The GreenTag MSD is a robust and comprehensive risk assessment process that will recognise product manufacturers who are taking significant responsibility and accountability in their procurement processes.
- The GreenTag MSD is a product level Declaration designed to respond to Government legislations pertaining globally to Modern Slavery that are finally starting to roll out and or are imminent.
A GreenTag MSD acknowledges that the ‘modern slavery risk disclosure’ is not about reporting that a company or its procurement processes and supply chains are ‘slavery-free’, but demonstrating the risk of slavery activities that may or may not have occurred within the business and the actions of a company taken to remedy and prevent such occurrences.
Scorecard Option: The scorecard shown is a possible solution to weighting and production of a single score for each product.
Before the Global GreenTag MSD becomes available to the industry, GreenTag is required to open a Stakeholder Review process, which we invite you to engage with, effective from Wednesday, March 4th and ending Monday, April 6th, 2020.
