Company Ranking10 out of
Wilmar International Ltd. (Wilmar), a Singaporean agribusiness involved in oils, grains, and sugar, ranks 10th out of 43 companies, disclosing more information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers across all themes. Notably, Wilmar has the highest score of all the benchmarked companies headquartered in Asia. Since 2018, it has only taken limited steps to improve (namely by disclosing due diligence on potential suppliers and requiring suppliers to disclose information on their recruitment practices). As the benchmark methodology requires companies to keep up with evolving stakeholder expectations and emerging good practices, Wilmar’s score decreased by three points. KnowTheChain identified one allegation of forced labor in Wilmar’s supply chains relating to three of its suppliers. Wilmar discloses worker engagement at only one supplier and remedy outcomes at only two suppliers. Wilmar has an opportunity to improve on the themes of Purchasing Practices, Recruitment, and Worker Voice.
