What are you doing to mark Anti-Slavery Day this year?
Anti-Slavery Day is marked every year on October 18th.
This Anti-Slavery Week runs between 16-22 October 2023 – join us in shining the spotlight on the hidden crime of modern slavery.
It’s a great platform to raise awareness of the issue in our own organisations, engage with our colleagues, customers, suppliers and partners about it and show what is being done to address modern slavery in our operations and supply chains. Members can highlight how membership of Slave-Free Alliance is helping to fund anti-slavery projects around the world run by our parent charity, Hope for Justice too.
Addressing modern slavery sits firmly in the ‘S’ of the ESG agenda; it’s part of how we should consider the impact of our organisations‘ initiatives on workers and the communities in which we operate. Today, conflict and crisis, like we see in Ukraine and Syria, create modern slavery risks in our workforces. As we make critical traction towards an eco-sustainable future, we need to ensure we consider that the renewable goods we buy are not made by people trapped in forced labour. By reducing the risk and addressing modern slavery in the reaches of our organisations, we are contributing to responsible and sustainable business practices – which are core to sound ESG credentials.
Join our action-packed, thought-provoking programme on modern slavery and the ESG agenda to learn something new, join the conversation and take more action in this space. Sign up to learn more below!
