The Workforce Disclosure Initiative (WDI) encourages listed companies to be more transparent about how they manage workers in their direct operations and supply chains. Backed by 140 investors with $14 trillion assets under management, it is organised by ShareAction, and promotes the provision of good jobs and fair wages worldwide.
RB was one of 118 companies which took part in the 2019 WDI survey and was ranked in the top 10% of participants for disclosure/transparency.
Miguel Veiga Pestana, SVP Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, said: “At RB we’re guided by our compass to do the right thing, always. We fully support WDI’s push for greater workforce and supply chain transparency and we’re proud to be among the leading companies in this report.”
It is the second time RB has taken part in the survey and the disclosure requirements were higher than previously. For example, further supply chain information had to be provided.
Vincent Kaufman, CEO at Ethos Investments, is one of the investors who supported WDI. He said: “We commend the 118 companies which have taken part in the 2019 survey and contributed to this push for workforce transparency.”
