conducting supplier audits or assessments, which have a greater degree of focus on slavery and human trafficking where general risks are identified;
taking steps to improve substandard suppliers' practices, including providing advice to suppliers and requiring them to implement action plans;
participating in collaborative initiatives focused on human rights in general, and slavery and human trafficking in particular;
invoking sanctions against suppliers that fail to improve their performance in line with an action plan or seriously violate our supplier code of conduct, including the termination of the business relationship.
