Delivering a transparent, independent, and safe channel

Our global grievance mechanisms offer a transparent, independent, and safe channel for workers to report health, safety, social/labour, and environmental issues anytime, anywhere.

Scalable from single sites to entire sectors and geographies, our model aligns with international frameworks like UNGPs and CSDDD.

Individuals are supported in local language with familiar and accessible channels, staffed by trained operators who understand local contexts and are trusted by rightsholders.

We identify and address issues, providing actionable information and on the ground support.

Our data-driven approach enables real-time monitoring, tracking, and reporting of grievances to support risk assessment, strategy, and sustainability reporting needs. 

Grievance mechanisms help cover ‘blind spots’ that audits, SAQs and other risk monitoring tools cannot reach in real time.
