Social and Labor Convergence Program (SLCP)

Collectively improve working conditions around the world

The Social Labor Convergence Program (SLCP) is a non-profit, multi-stakeholder initiative designed to promote industry collaboration on social assessments, thereby reducing audit fatigue in global supply chains and freeing up resources to allocate toward improvement actions.

Based on the Converged Assessment Framework (CAF) developed by SLCP, a common data tool and verification methodology, SLCP increases collaboration across the apparel and footwear industry. As an approved verifying body, LRQA conducts hundreds of SLCP verifications annually.
