The 2nd Global Modern Slavery & Supply Chain Summit will give you practical examples on how to move beyond the statement to implementing your company’s strategy on eradicating forced labour.

Over 150 leading companies will share their best practices at the conference on policies and commitments, identifying labour issues, remediation and prevention, reporting and communication. Led by the world’s top brands, you will hear from board members, leading policy, legal, procurement, trade and sustainability practitioners from the UK and Europe, US, Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Key Issues

  • Put policies into action: How anti-modern slavery policies should be integrated into corporate governance and business as usual
  • Modern slavery vs. other human rights risks: Develop company-specific risk management and handling framework
  • Detect labour issues: What are the unconventional tools available to understand local context and address deep-root causes of forced labour
  • Empower suppliers: Implement the new model of ethical trading through partnership with your suppliers to enforce your standards further down
  • Ethical recruitment in action: Engage and train recruitment agencies to improve their practices and reduce workers’ vulnerabilities through direct recruitment
  • Victims’ support: Develop policies and programmes to demonstrate your support to survivors of modern slavery
  • Your statement in the spotlight: Legal repercussions vs. sharing your progress and how much exposure should your anti-modern slavery efforts get
  • UK and international regulation: Should enforcement and prosecution be expected and how to comply with the legislation across jurisdictions
