Human rights in supply chains is a complex topic because of its extensive reach. Negative human rights impacts can occur at every level in any company supply chain. It can occur from tier one suppliers (also called direct suppliers) to several layers of suppliers and subcontractors that supply products, services and raw materials to direct suppliers.
Traditionally, human rights issues in supply chains focused on labor rights abuses, such as child labor, forced labor, trafficking, or poor work conditions. However, all human rights issues must be closely looked at, such as resettlement rights, indigenous peoples’ rights, rights to safety and security, rights to safe environmental conditions (safe and clean water, unpolluted areas). That is why the term “Supply chain sustainability ” is also used to speak about “human rights in the supply chain” because human rights are related to social responsibility, environmental protection and economic considerations.
