@LidlGB, you've started work to uphold human rights in your supply chains. But progress is slow & now you're bottom of @OxfamGB's scorecard. Will you be more open about who your suppliers are, & improve your approach to women's rights? #BehindTheBarcodes

@Morrisons, you've made huge progress to protect workers' rights in your supply chains. But you're still near the bottom of @OxfamGB's scorecard. What will you do to better support women's rights & farmers in your global supply chains? #BehindTheBarcodes

@AldiUK, you've climbed up from the bottom of @OxfamGB's supermarket scorecard, and you’ve made the biggest improvements of all six supermarkets. But you still have a long way to go. I want to see you keep up your commitments. #BehindTheBarcodes

@Asda, you've made progress to ensure human rights are respected in your supply chains, and you're still third on @OxfamGB's supermarket scorecard. But you still need to do more to improve workers and farmers' rights. #BehindTheBarcodes

@Sainsburys you're 2nd on @OxfamGB's scorecard – but you're still not doing enough to better support your food producers. Commit to the UN human rights principles (the other big 5 have!) & show what you're doing about human rights risks #BehindTheBarcodes

@Tesco, you're top of @OxfamGB's scorecard! You've made big changes to support your food producers, but a score of 38% still isn’t great. Be more open about your suppliers, & do more work with those who give power to workers & farmers. #BehindTheBarcodes

The supermarket scorecard

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

We analysed these leading supermarkets’ policies and practices on human rights in their supply chains. We asked whether supermarkets are transparent and accountable in the ways they ensure that workers’ rights are respected, small-scale farmers are prosperous and the women who produce our food are treated fairly.

Three steps to a supermarket scorecard:

1. We examined supermarkets' policies and practices

2. We looked for behaviour that protects the rights of workers, farmers and women and gave each supermarket a score out of 100%

3. The higher the percentage, the better your supermarket checks out on human rights – but all six still have a long way to go.
