What Is the Slavery & Trafficking Risk Template (STRT)?
The Slavery & Trafficking Risk Template (STRT) is an open-source industry standard template used within global supply chains to collect trafficking and slavery related data. The template aids companies and their supply chains in achieving their corporate social responsibility goals by facilitating the collection of relevant data, which can then be leveraged for a variety of purposes. For example, the data collected with the STRT is used to assess and mitigate human trafficking and slavery-related risk, improve supply chain visibility and aid in compliance with human trafficking and modern slavery-related regulations. STRT 2.0 is the most recent version of the template, replacing version 1.3 in November 2019. It is in Excel format, and consists of 20 questions designed to facilitate the collection of relevant data and supporting documentation, when applicable.

The Social Responsibility Alliance
& the STRT
The Social Responsibility Alliance (SRA) is an initiative focused on providing companies with the tools and resources they need to achieve socially responsible supply chains. The SRA works to facilitate the collection of human rights and labor rights data, helping companies and their supply chains to work towards more ethical operations. The STRT is a free, open-source tool provided by the SRA. The STRT was developed and is maintained by the STRT Development Committee. This committee is comprised of a consensus-based group of organizations focused on eradicating trafficking and slavery from supply chains. The Development Committee creates, updates and maintains versions of the STRT to ensure it meets the data collection needs of companies and supply chains across industry.
The Social Responsibility Alliance website offers a variety of resources to help companies to complete and utilize the template. These resources can be accessed alongside news and other important updates. Assent Compliance can also aid in the completion, validation and use of the STRT through our Human Rights Module.
