Our Working Conditions indices showcase the risk of the association with violations of the payment of decent wages, working time and health and safety standards. Businesses face operational, financial, legal and reputational risks where they fail to meet these standards.

The Working Conditions indices can help you:

  • Screen and compare operations and supply chains for labour rights violations risks
  • Understand the areas that pose most threat to establishing decent working conditions for workers
  • Align corporate strategy with global standards like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
