This baseline report summarizes data from bilateral interviews with supply chain, procurement, and sustainability executives from companies that participate in the UN Global Compact Action Platform on Decent Work in Global Supply Chains.

The report presents insights into some of the key challenges and opportunities that companies face in their efforts to develop more sustainable procurement strategies. It also offers practical examples of steps taken to combat pressing human rights issues in supply chains, such as modern slavery, child labour and non-compliance with employment standards, and references relevant initiatives and resources for further guidance on these issues.
