Modern slavery and transparency in supply chains: the role of business

Modern slavery and transparency in supply chains: the role of business

(p.187) Eight Modern slavery and transparency in supply chains: the role of business
The Modern Slavery Agenda

This chapter explores how business is implicated by modern slavery, and the salient requirements of the UK Modern Slavery Act (MSA) transparency in supply chain provision, in the context of growing mandatory reporting requirements for business to report transparently on their supply chain impacts. It also examines how business has responded to the MSA. It concludes with some practical steps that business can take to address the risk of modern slavery in its supply chains. Among these are ensuring that top management is supportive of tackling modern slavery in the organisation and supply chains; understanding how these obligations fit within any wider mandatory or voluntary reporting undertaken by the business; putting policies in place; establishing robust due-diligence processes; mapping the supply and value chain of the business.

Keywords:   Modern Slavery Act, MSA, supply chain, transparency, voluntary reporting
