Social and Labor Convergence (SLCP)

SLCP – The Social and Labor Convergence Program aims to bring together unique perspectives to create an efficient, scalable and sustainable solution for social audits. This framework includes a standard-agnostic tool and verification methodology which collects objective social and labor data that stakeholders can use to identify opportunities for improvement and track progress. One assessment for all, vast amounts of resources saved. Imagine the possibilities.

Why now?

While the current compliance-focused approach has played a significant role improving social and labor conditions over the past two decades, it has also led to a proliferation of audits. Manufacturers, brands and other stakeholders are ready to move away from endless audits to investments which truly make a difference. It is time to think differently together. Change begins here.

What do we want to achieve?

SLCP believe that they can improve working conditions by joining forces: one single assessment for all, more resources and improvements for everyone. That is why SLCP have created a Converged Assessment Framework that supports stakeholders’ efforts to improve working conditions in global supply chains.

This program will help the industry to:

  • Eliminate audit fatigue: avoid duplication and reduce the number of social & labor audits, by replacing current proprietary assessment tools
  • Increase the opportunity for greater comparability of social & labor data
  • Redeploy resources to improvement actions

This includes the application process, providing training, and implementation of Quality Assurance (QA) processes and procedures. Service providers who wish to provide SLCP verification to facilities must be completed the application and training process through SLCP online.

GCL are delighted to announce the approval as SLCP Verification Body (VB) for facilities verification
