In early 2019, Origin Energy had developed and rolled out their Supplier Code and a Supplier Assessment Questionnaire to their top 500 suppliers. However, Origin required support in their assessment of the risks of modern slavery practices across the range of suppliers and product categories.
Point Advisory was engaged to develop Origin’s Modern Slavery Supplier Risk Assessment Methodology. The methodology utilised supplier responses received to Origin’s Supplier Assessment Questionnaire to assess supplier-related modern slavery risks across product categories, commodities, and geographic locations.
The results were reflected in an Excel-based Supplier Modern Slavery Risk Dashboard to support the Procurement team in their risk assessment processes in line with the Origin Supplier Code.
Point Advisory continues to provide support for Origin Energy and is currently helping to improve their modern slavery risk assessment processes in procurement and supplier management activities.
