Human Rights Ratings

The market information platform HGS Research supports you in abstract risk analyses and offers easy-to-use, interactive views in the platform:

  • Human rights-related country ratings for > 170 countries
  • Human rights-related sector ratings for 88 sectors
  • Human rights-related product group ratings for > 6,000 product groups
  • Each in 10 individual human rights-related dimensions and with an overall result
  • Risk heat maps in the form of maps and tables
  • Tool for visualising potential human rights risks in the supply chain
  • Tool for analysing potential human rights risks in the procurement portfolio

The calculations on which the rating is based are calculated by HGS based on statistical data. The ratings are updated by HGS on a quarterly basis.

Country, sector and product group ratings are available in HGS Research upon a mouseclick. They show the human rights risks associated with a product group. They also show which countries and sectors contribute to the risk of this product group with their specific human rights risks. This is possible for each product group after selection by the user, not only in level 1, but also for upstream product groups in level 2-n. The data and tools provided in HGS Research support the identification of potentially risky product groups and their upstream products.

Tool for analysing potential human rights risks in the procurement portfolio

HGS provides a tool for analysing potential human rights risks in the customer's procurement portfolio via the HGS Research market information platform. HGS Research users can download the tool from the application.

It contains the human rights risk indicators calculated by HGS at country, sector and product group level, each in 10 individual dimensions and one overall dimension, and combines these indicators with the data for the customer's procurement portfolio.

The tool filled with customer data and the analysis results are not stored on the HGS servers, but on the customer's premises. Users of the tool therefore retain the data from their own procurement portfolio and results.

Aims of the human rights risk analysis tool provided by HGS:

  • In particular, the tool supports the annual, abstract risk analysis and enables data-based and efficient processing.
  • The customer receives a categorisation of suppliers, material groups etc. into risk classes with different levels of potential human rights risks.
