Cisco Systems Inc. (Cisco) provides stronger disclosure of its policies and programs aimed at addressing forced labor risks in its supply chain relative to most of its peers. The company ranks fourth on the benchmark overall. Its relatively high rank is driven by its comprehensive disclosure of forced labor policies, internal management systems, and supply chain management processes that support its commitment to eradicate human trafficking and forced labor from its supply chain. Notably, the company demonstrates leading practices with respect to its engagement with relevant stakeholders on human trafficking and forced labor topics. Cisco may consider improving its transparency and performance by disclosing evidence of a management approach to recruitment practices in its supply chain, empowering suppliers' workers to voice their concerns, and establishing a process to remedy the rights of supply chain workers when violated.
