The Global Threat of Human Trafficking

Human trafficking and modern slavery involve the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain labor. No country or supply chain is insulated from the presence of human trafficking, and manufacturers must be able able to see deeper to ensure workers in their supply chains are not victims of these abuses.

Real Business Risks

In addition to the human costs of human trafficking and slavery, its presence in supply chains impacts investor interest, market access, reputational risk, and the ability to meet customer requirements. More countries, including the UK and Australia, are beginning to regulate their supply chains to protect against human trafficking.

To comply, companies must spend time and resources contacting suppliers and collecting data from deep within the supply chain. On top of this, the required data is always changing as more regulations come into effect.

Why Human Trafficking Compliance Matters

Compliance with human trafficking legislation requires a continuous, ongoing program. The associated risks and challenges can be complex:

  • Market access: Your business could lose access to any number of global markets — and you can’t grow where you can’t go.
  • Company reputation: Unethical business practices expose your brand to potential damage.
  • Inability to prove compliance: Without deep supply chain visibility, proving due diligence can be difficult, if not impossible.
  • Taking focus away from goals: Protect your team’s time and let them focus on business growth goals.
