Webinar: Modern Slavery Compliance
What we’ve learnt and what’s to come

Modern slavery is a huge problem which, according to the Global Slavery Index, there are more than 40 million victims worldwide.

For businesses, modern slavery is a significant risk and governance issue, from a compliance and reputational perspective. The media is very focused on this topic ­– for example, the alleged issue of human rights abuses in China, specifically in the Xinjiang province, that is affecting many supply chains in the textiles and other sectors.

The Modern Slavery reporting period for large corporations and other entities operating in Australia has recently passed, including those who may have received an extension.

Feedback suggests that many organisations found it a difficult and challenging task to meet their compliance and reporting obligations, and those that did submitted the minimum information to meet the reporting requirements.

What are the lessons learnt from the first year of reporting in Australia? What can entities do to streamline and leverage their modern slavery compliance efforts while managing the risks? Can modern slavery reporting be effectively operationalised and incorporated into holistic supply chain compliance programs?

In Safetrac’s FREE webinar, Modern Slavery Compliance – What we’ve learnt and what’s to come, experts Deborah Coram (CEO of Safetrac) and Geraldine Johns-Putra (legal, governance and modern slavery specialist) will review the status of modern slavery reporting, the environment of supply chain compliance and provide you with strategies and information on how to make this time consuming and challenging process more manageable.
