The STRT is a template used to support organizations in their anti-slavery, human trafficking, and child labour compliance program. Its goal is to serve as the single standard survey for the collection and sharing of slavery, human trafficking, child labour risk, and compliance-related data across supply chains. A multi-stakeholder development committee - The Social Responsibility Alliance (SRA), maintains STRT.

Have you received the STRT request from your customers?

Organizations, like your customer, are facing increasing regulatory requirements and pressure to address their potential slavery, human trafficking, and child labour impacts. They are responding by taking proactive measures to collect data from their suppliers, like you, to better target and prioritize their risk mitigation actions.

How does it work?

The STRT facilitates easy and efficient data exchange throughout supply chains. It enables suppliers to share data on their practices, policies, and procedures with their customers. It also enables organizations, like you & your customers, to satisfy their internal (and increasingly legally mandated) due diligence commitments.
