Eradicating Exploitation – Tackling Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains

7.6.2024 12:15

How to identify labour exploitation within complex supply chains? What steps should companies take to mitigate the risk of child labour?

Despite the Sustainable Development Goals' call to action to eradicate forced labour, modern slavery, human trafficking, and end child labour by 2025, global progress remains stagnant. With over 27 million people worldwide trapped in forced or compulsory labour, and nearly 1 in 10 children subjected to child labour, urgent action is needed.

In this webinar, we will explore how companies can address forced labour and child labour within their operations and supply chains, offering practical solutions and strategies for businesses.
