Modern Slavery, as well as Fairness, Inclusion and Respect (FIR), plus Community Engagement have emerged as standout areas of achievement and improvement for construction and infrastructure over the last year — according to the annual industry-wide survey of built-environment contracting organisations and supply-chain companies, undertaken by the Supply Chain Sustainability School.
The findings of the second Impact Survey reveal that the leadership, learning and support provided by the School is clearly and consistently credited with having a significant positive influence.
In the survey, nearly 9 out of every 10 companies achieving improved understanding of both Modern Slavery (86%) and Fairness, Inclusion & Respect (FIR) (87%) state that the School has helped them achieve these results. In addition, the proportion that attributed their increased levels of Community Engagement to assistance received from the School also rose year-on-year some 15% to 72%, in total.
