Relevant information for up to one-half of the indicators (and at least one-quarter of them).
Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. (Dick’s), the largest sporting goods retailer in the US, has taken some steps to address forced labor risks in its supply chains. It discloses about the same amount of information as the global sector average. Other US sports retailers such as Nike or Under Armour disclose taking stronger steps. Dick’s states that it is “commissioning ELEVATE to determine key suppliers near the Xinjiang region to confirm and document potential touchpoint risks to ensure that no cotton inputs produced by Uyghur forced labor are making [their] way into [its] supply chain.” However, it does not disclose the steps it is otherwise taking to address the risks of alleged Uyghur forced labor in its supply chains, including engaging with expert stakeholders such as exiled Uyghur groups or the Coalition to End Uyghur Forced Labor.

SUBSET OF INDICATORS
The KnowTheChain methodology assesses companies’ efforts to address forced labor risks in their supply chains. It is based on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and covers policy commitments, due diligence, and remedy. The methodology uses the ILO core labor standards (which cover the human rights that the ILO has declared to be fundamental rights at work: freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, and the elimination of forced labor, child labor, and discrimination) as a baseline standard.
Supplier Code of Conduct and Integration into Supplier Contracts
The company has a supplier code of conduct that requires suppliers to respect the ILO core labor standards, which include the elimination of forced labor; and integrates the ILO core labor standards into supplier contracts.
