Slavery is an issue of our time and this abuse exists in all industries and countries.

In order to help end slavery, companies are expected to conduct ongoing due diligence, consistent with the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights. Failure to act creates ethical, operational, reputational and legal risk for companies.

New laws require many businesses to report on the steps they are taking to tackle slavery.
