In 2015, we trained a further 8,130 employees on human rights across nine FTSE4Good countries of concern. It means 72,778 employees have been trained across 66 countries since 2011.
For reasons beyond our control, planned assessments could not be carried out in Egypt and Saudi Arabia. As a result, our original 2015 objective could not be met in full and a new 2018 objective has been introduced to provide an extension, allowing these and other remaining assessments to be carried out.

Our Child Labour Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) identifies child labour in our cocoa supply chain, helping us understand root causes and develop appropriate responses. By the end of 2015, the system covered 40 cocoa co-operatives (50% of those supplying us), while 44,617 farmers and 120,067 community members had been made aware of child labour. All vanilla and hazelnut co-operatives were also covered.
In 2015, we maintained our commitment to fight child labour as a member of the International Labour Organization’s Child Labour Platform, and continued to implement action plans focused on categories and countries with a higher risk of child labour issues.
