Ericsson demonstrates above average disclosure of its policies and practices for mitigating the risk of forced labor in its supply chain, ranking sixth on the benchmark overall. The company exhibits leading practice with respect to its purchasing practices, scoring the highest in this area compared to its peers. In addition, the company's overall ranking performance is driven by its commitment to addressing forced labor, a supply chain standard that supports this commitment, its processes for monitoring and auditing suppliers, and its remedy programs. To enhance its benchmark performance, Ericsson may consider improving its disclosure of its supply chain traceability and risk assessment processes, developing and disclosing a responsible approach to the recruitment of workers in its supply chain, and communicate its human trafficking and forced labor policies and standards to workers in the supply chain in their local languages.
