An automated modern slavery compliance solution for business that addresses the global problem
Slavery is illegal in every country and anti-slavery legislation has been around for over 200 years yet today globalisation has bred a thriving, pervasive, highly-profitable industry called ‘modern slavery’ with over 40 million people currently trapped in some form of forced labour. 10 million of them are children.
Eliminating modern slavery will require a coordinated, collaborative global effort
Governments need to lead the elimination of modern slavery by enacting effective MS legislation, enforcing compliance, and addressing any in-country human rights issues as they emerge.
Business need to diligently comply with modern slavery legislation, ensure their processes are ‘best practise’ in identifying and avoiding MS, and support the implementation of solutions in their supply chains.
Civil Society Organisations (NGOs, unions, human rights groups etc) need to provide in-field intelligence; guide solution design and implementation; influence business and government and hold them to account; and maintain in-field slavery checks and balances.
End-consumers, who create the demand for goods produced by slaves, have perhaps the most crucial role to play in being informed, demanding ‘slave-free’ products, and holding brands and retailers to account.
Sovereign wealth funds, ethical investors and socially-conscious consumers can exert powerful influence in supply chains by using slavery transparency as a requirement to invest or buy.
