A human rights policy should be realistic and in line
with the insights of your supply chain. We assist you.
One of the first steps for organizations that want to work on human rights is to set up a Human Rights Policy that truly is in line with their own values. A human rights policy should be realistic and in line with the insights of the human rights situation in supply chains. ImpactBuying has supported several organizations in setting up strong but pragmatic human rights policies, codes of conducts and requirements for suppliers.
Ready to work on Human rights issues in your supply chain?
At ImpactBuying we have leading specialists in Human Rights- auditing and monitoring. We contributed to the development of the Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI). We constantly monitor the agenda from NGO’s and support organizations to work on topics like women rights and child labor. Not all human rights issues are easy to track and find. But when found we have pragmatic solutions to deliver a buyer a one-page summary with instructions for action.
Social Compliance Escalation Service
Reading and analysing the social audit reports of your suppliers is part of your human rights due diligence. ImpactBuying can perform that service for you.
However, what to do if a non-compliance is found on a ‘salient’ or ‘dealbreaker’ issue and it is escalated to your purchasing department? How does the buyer know what to do towards the supplier to ensure the situation is improved or remediated?

Accepted Standards Benchmark
When you have identified a risk area or specific salient issue in your supply chain, your suppliers need to know what you expect from them to mitigate the risks involved. Next to your code of conduct also a list of standards that you accept is an essential part of your requirements. However, there are hundreds of voluntary standards used in the market to verify and improve social and environmental practices; how will you know which ones to accept as evidence from suppliers, and which ones are not sufficient to cover your identified risks?
