Research shows that around 40 million people worldwide are victims of modern slavery. Tackling modern slavery is becoming increasingly important for organisations as they look to ensure sustainable business practices.

The US Department of Labor (DoL) has allocated US$22 million to tackle abusive labour practices in the fashion industry and to combat the use of child and forced labour in supply chains.

In Canada, legislators have proposed modern slavery legislation to combat child and forced labour in the supply chains of entities doing business there.

Australia’s first modern slavery statements are due this year so find out if this applies to your business as foreign entities doing business in the country could also be affected.

Risks posed by international supply chains are extremely complex. Use these key questions to assess slavery and human trafficking risks for your business.
