"Look at modern-day slavery from different viewpoints - legal, supply chain governance & human rights"
The 2015 Modern Slavery Act was instrumental in highlighting the issue of forced labour around the world, and the role that UK companies need to play .. Read more in ensuring goods and services are free of exploitation. Companies with a turnover of £36m are legally required to produce an annual transparency statement, and it is often the responsibility of the company secretary to bring this to their board’s attention.But with modern supply chains so complex, how can organisations ensure they are robust, stable and ethical? Are subsidiaries willing and able to implement solutions that minimise Western views of forced labour within the constraints of their culture? How do boards manage their extended relationships? Do they give them the attention they deserve? And consider the risks posed to their brands and reputations?

Highlights

  • Discuss the role the company secretary should play in writing up the annual transparency statement
  • How leading organisations are mapping their supply chains, to shift toward public transparency
  • The need to update the Act and why the UK government should hold organisations accountable
