Improving your modern slavery statement

About this webinar

Scrutiny from legislators, civil society, media, investors, clients and suppliers is increasing exponentially year-on-year. The indications are that the ever-more stringent recommendations of last year’s published Independent Review of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015) will be introduced in 2020. Are you ready and prepared? Your Modern Slavery statement is the public disclosure mechanism to provide transparency about the actions you are taking to implement policies and processes to meet your global supply chain obligations, mitigate their impacts and provide remedy where you encounter illegal or unethical practices.
