It’s difficult to imagine that your organisation or you would ever be involved with or condone slavery.
Unfortunately, there are examples of where organisations unwittingly are complicit in the exploitation of others and often through not understanding their supply chain.
Slavery is more prevalent today than it has been at any other point in history, with an estimated 40.3 million people in modern slavery globally today.
Assessing your supply chain
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 aims to prevent and increase the transparency of labour practices and compliance in supply chains within organisations.
One of the important areas of risk management and compliance for organisations is to look at the probability that the supply chain might have illegal practices or poor controls relating to modern slavery.
Managing modern slavery risks should form part of your organisations Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) programme.
To identify risk, you need to understand the nature of modern slavery, then apply risk methodology to your organisation to identify where in your organisation issues may occur.
