Modern slavery is a huge problem which, according to the Global Slavery Index, affects 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 for most. Feedback suggests that many organisations found it a challenging task to meet their compliance, reporting and due diligence 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?
This informative webinar covered:
- Initial reporting period – what have we learnt?
- Framework and legislation – what is coming?
- Engaging your supply chain – what are the challenges and opportunities?
