From Risk to Responsibility: Identifying and Mitigating Forced Labor Risks

June 20, 2024 | 10.00 - 10.45 am EDT | 4:00 - 4:45 pm CET

Forced labor within supply chains is a global issue that significantly impacts business ethics, consumer trust, and the protection of human rights. Despite growing awareness and regulatory efforts – such as the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, the Canadian Modern Slavery Act, and the EU Forced Labor Regulation – forced labor persists as a hidden blight within the global economy, infiltrating various levels of production and distribution networks.

The implications for businesses not addressing forced labor in their supply chains can be significant. These include legal risks, reputational damage, and the potential for boycotts by consumers. Conversely, companies that take a strong stand against forced labor can enhance their brand integrity, build consumer trust, and potentially enjoy a competitive advantage.
