What we do

The National Pact Institute for the Eradication of Slave Labor builds sectoral strategies for tackling slave labor in production chains. Our role is to draw the attention of national and multinational companies to the risk of exploiting vulnerable people along their supply chains. And given the existence of risks, call on the actors involved in the sector to engage in collective actions. We believe that our place of contribution in society is to mobilize companies and engage them, offering technical knowledge to face the challenge more efficiently.

InPACTO Vulnerability Index

One of the biggest bottlenecks for combating slave labor in Brazil and in the world is the scarcity of information that can effectively contribute to the decision-making of those who seek socially responsible business, efficient public policies, dialogue with civil society and consumers.

In the search for the best solutions in risk management of slave labor in the production chains, InPACTO has advanced in the use of technologies and invests in the analysis and crossing of socioeconomic data to identify the vulnerability to the exploitation of workers in Brazilian municipalities.

The InPACTO Vulnerability Index is an innovative proposal so that companies and sectors can prioritize preventive actions in their production chains and improve the fight against slave and child labor in Brazil.

The pilot project for the Index was developed in 2018 for JBS, in partnership with Agrotools, with the crop sector in the Legal Amazon. Now, the project reaches Minas Gerais, with a database that covers the 853 municipalities in the state, in a test phase with the participation of companies.

We present data, methodologies and processes for risk management in the production chains.

Advice Technique

All companies or organizations that join InPACTO make commitments with the objective of implementing actions that contribute to the eradication of slave labor in Brazilian production chains. To this end, they also sign the so-called “National Pact for the Eradication of Slave Labor”.

Annually, we carry out a monitored diagnosis that helps us to understand the challenges faced by the associates in fulfilling these commitments. The diagnosis is built from the information collected in the annual MONITORING. They are what allow us to measure obstacles and progress, and to propose more effective tools to control and mitigate risks in the production chains, when necessary. Based on the analysis of this information, we provide each company with an individual diagnosis with suggestions for improving its internal management instruments and its social responsibility policies and programs.

Articulation

The companies that sign the pact commit themselves to fulfill commitments to face slave labor in their production chains. One of the commitments of member organizations is to systematize, disseminate and share initiatives, which must gain visibility to be replicated. The exchange of experiences and the expansion of knowledge are the basis of meetings with associates and InPACTO seeks to enhance the opportunity for members of the institute to be inspired, with the presentation of successful initiatives.
