The purpose of the service is to assist in improving worker welfare in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and in line with the fundamental conventions of the International Labour Organisation. In adition, the service makes supplier human rights assessments more efficient in the supply chain.
More specifically the service contributes to:
A significant proportion of the value in the energy industry is created through activities performed by suppliers and sub-suppliers. It is important for the industry to be able to demonstrate respect for human rights. This work is simplified by establishing a common industry framework.
The framework includes mechanisms for continuous improvements. This is done through a process of independent assessments of the supplier’s management system and worksite performance towards internationally recognised standards as well as continuous collaboration to work on areas of improvement.
The supplier will then be able to demonstrate respect for human rights, which allow improvement opportunities to be identified and worked on during the execution of their contracts, with the ultimate objective of improving working conditions in the supply.
