The Social Hotspots Database (SHDB) provides great insight into social hotspots in product supply chains, covering 140 countries and regions and 57 economic sectors. The database includes an extensive list of indicators around labor rights, health and safety, human rights, governance, and community infrastructure – thus allowing modeling of social impacts and risks.

On May 23rd, 2019 the developers of SHDB, NewEarth B, provided an overview of SHDB, covering the following topics:
- Introduction to Social LCA
- Overview of SHDB (including new and updated data)
