According to Australia’s Department of Home Affairs…
Modern slavery describes situations where offenders use coercion, threats or deception to exploit victims and undermine their freedom.
Modern slavery can occur in every industry and sector and has severe consequences for victims. Modern slavery also distorts global markets, undercuts responsible business and can pose significant legal and reputational risks to entities.
Entities have a responsibility to respect human rights in their operations and supply chains, as outlined in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. This includes taking steps to assess and address modern slavery risks.
Taking action to combat modern slavery also makes good business sense. Entities that take action to combat modern slavery in their operations and supply chains can protect against possible business harm and improve the integrity and quality of their supply chains.
They can also increase profitability, investor confidence and access to financing opportunities.
Certified By’s Modern Slavery Program provides a framework and assessment to measure, identify, assess and mitigate modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chain.
With a centralised repository for real time verification of visible compliance, this program empowers suppliers to manage the process themselves and avoid repetitive procurement and compliance practices.
