A SMETA 2-Pillar audit comprises:
●● Labour Standards
●● Health and Safety
●● Additional Elements:
• Universal Rights covering UNGP
• Management Systems
• Entitlement to Work
• Subcontracting and Homeworking
• Environment (shortened)
 
A SMETA 4-Pillar audit contains in addition:
●● Environment (extended) – this replaces the
Environment (shortened) section detailed
above
●● Business Ethics

As Luisa Sot indicates, the 4 Pillar option is slightly more comprehensive.
Are you going for SMETA due to a specific requirement from clients? If so then check with them, as some companies have a preference for 4-pillar in their supply chain.
