Modern Slavery in Supply Chains
Modern slavery is a serious global problem that routinely occurs in supply chains, affecting 1 in 200 people and generating an estimated $150 billion in illicit profits each year. Strong competition, low-profit margins and the demand for cheap labor are among the key factors driving the exploitation of vulnerable people in global supply chains.
COVID-19 has worsened the problem. One of the effects of the economic impact of the pandemic on families is an increase in the number of children and adults who are at risk of being targets of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Implementing modern slavery in supply chains training and a supplier code of conduct are important steps in an organization’s ability to manage the risks associated with modern slavery and human trafficking and ensure an ethical, safe and healthy work environment for all employees.
