Modern Slavery is an umbrella term that captures the range of multifaceted and complex crimes, which include all forms of human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, forced or servile marriage, and the worst forms of child labour.

We know that millions of people in modern slavery are being exploited to work, often as low skilld labour, as part of a supply chain producing goods that are distributed to consumers throughout the world.

With the rapid acceleration of globalisation, global supply chains have grown exponentially, transforming the way organisations conduct cross-border production, investment, trade, and employment. Multinational enterprises have inherently complex, diverse, and dynamic supply chains.
