Forced labour is ubiquitous in global supply chains. This webinar showcases approaches to some of the challenges, including; how to respond to risks in different countries and lower tiers of supply chains; how to work effectively with suppliers and enable workers to exercise their rights; and how to ensure meaningful transparency to investors in line with regulatory requirements. This webinar shares good practice examples from KnowTheChain, the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark and the UK Modern Slavery Act Registry, with a focus on worker voice, recruitment and remedy. Speakers from H&M and Intel shared a corporate perspective on addressing the many dilemmas associated with forced labour in supply chains.
