The free, online Stronger Together Progress Reporting Tool (PRT) enables companies to monitor, benchmark and report their progress in addressing modern slavery risks within their business and global supply chains.

To enhance the support already offered, Stronger Together has developed and launched the Progress Reporting Tool, a step-by-step United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGP) aligned comprehensive, self-assessment tool, now available for the UK consumer goods supply chain. The tool enables businesses operating in the consumer goods sector to track and evaluate their progress in tackling modern slavery in their business and supply chain and benchmarks their progress against their industry peers.

By quantifying an organisation’s progress, the PRT will facilitate increased dialogue across the supply chain, enabling suppliers to share data with their retail customers and uncover any common challenges faced by themselves and their peers – benefiting both supplier and retailer. Through monitoring the progress made, the PRT provides a clear overview that can be reported in modern slavery statements.

David Camp, Stronger Together Founder said, “For five years now, Stronger Together has led in supporting businesses to detect, deter and deal with forced labour. We have developed ground breaking guidance detailing the practical actions that businesses can take, offered a wide range of pragmatic free resources for organisations to download and use and provided compelling training to raise awareness and build capacity to thousands of companies. The Progress Reporting Tool is our next pioneering development and will enable businesses across whole supply chains to monitor and report their progress made by their company in implementing a comprehensive tackling modern slavery strategy and actions.”
