Today, KnowTheChain benchmarks current corporate practices, develops insights, and provides practical resources that inform investor decisions and enable companies to comply with growing legal obligations while operating more transparently and responsibly.
Founded by Humanity United in 2013, KnowTheChain was initially created to encourage greater corporate understanding of the California Supply Chain Transparency Act (SB 657)–a groundbreaking law requiringcompanies to disclose their efforts to address forced labor abuses in their supply chains.
From 2013 to 2015, KnowTheChain
sourced information about corporate compliance with SB-657. KnowTheChain worked with companies on their disclosure statements and provided guidance to the UK Home Office for the Modern Slavery Act.
