Modern Slavery Impacts 40.3 Million victims globally and 100,000 in the UK alone.
Incidences of human rights abuses, particularly in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking are increasing.
Written commitments to change are no longer enough; supply chain audits, appropriate risk management actions and clear and transparent processes are becoming the new norm.
The Modern Slavery Act
The Modern Slavery Act was enacted in 2015 to create transparency in organisational supply chains and to assist in the uncovering of modern slavery abuses and incidents of human trafficking.
Companies that do business in the UK and which have an annual global turnover of £36 million or more are subject to the Act.
Companies that do not fall within the scope of the Act, are seeking to voluntarily comply as the world forces companies to push ESG to the top of the corporate agenda.
