HUMAN RIGHTS DUE DILIGENCE

Last year, 50 million people around the world were living in modern slavery: 28 million in forced labor and 22 million in forced marriages. That’s 10 million more than in 2016. Women and children are especially vulnerable. 

GREEN WORLDWIDE IS DEDICATED TO DOING OUR PART TO END THESE HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES. 

We have adopted a forced labor policy, stated our expectations in our employee and business partner Codes of Conduct, and are implementing a human rights due diligence program. 

Here we will share resources, provide transparency, and report on our progress. 

FORCED LABOR POLICY

Green Worldwide Shipping is committed to eradicating, and prohibits the use of, forced labor, human trafficking, modern slavery, and/or any other type for forced or compulsory labor in its global value chain. Green also requires that its suppliers and business partners have the same or similar commitment. 

HUMAN RIGHTS DUE DILIGENCE PROGRAM

We have developed our Human Rights Due Diligence program in collaboration with third-party experts and utilizing a variety of resources from different stakeholder groups. 

The program is designed to conform with all relevant legislation concerning forced labor and with international best practices, such as the OECD Responsible Supply Chain Framework. It takes a risk-based approach that includes risk identification, assessment, mitigation, and due diligence. 

To respond to our ever-changing global value chain, we will implement the program continuously based on cyclical iterations that include the review and, when necessary, update of our policy statement document. Cyclical iterations shall also include business partner engagement, data collection, risk remediation and public reporting. 

The program is further described in our Forced Labor Policy Statement. 

GRIEVANCE MECHANISM

If you become aware of or suspect any use of forced labor in our global value chain, or conditions that create a risk of forced labor, please notify Green promptly at [email protected]

Green employees and business partners are required to do this by our Codes of Conduct. 

All reports are taken seriously and investigated, and if substantiated, resolved through corrective action. Corrective action is determined through review of the business relationship by the relevant department and may include, but is not limited to, suspension or termination of the business relationship.
