Dun & Bradstreet Issues Human Trafficking Risk Index

Dun & Bradstreet has made available the Human Trafficking Risk index.

The tool was designed to help companies better manage their global supply chains, by providing a clear view into family trees and corporate linkages. In the process, D&B said, companies can gain transparency into the multiple layers of vendors used throughout their procurement efforts. The index uses proprietary data from D&B’s global database of 250 million business records, along with public data from the U.S. Departments of State and Labor, to analyze conditions in areas where goods are produced, and assign a score for that region and commodity. An index of scores can help to assess a company's risk of being associated with goods and services potentially tied to human trafficking, the firm said.
