Global Modern Slavery & Supply Chain Summit

Global Modern Slavery & Supply Chain Summit

Now in its third year, and combined with the Californian Act and anticipated EU, Australian and Canadian legislation, the UK Modern Slavery Act is arguably transforming corporate supply chains.

To keep up with this transformation and to stay ahead of your peers join the second Global Modern Slavery & Supply Chain Summit (14 Nov. London). 

Gathering over 150 senior practitioners, the Summit will give you practical insights on how to move beyond the statement to implementing your corporate strategy. 

Led by the world’s top brands, you will get a truly international perspective from senior board members, procurement, policy, legal, trade and sustainability practitioners from the UK and Europe, USA, Asia, Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. 

1. Modern slavery vs. other human rights risks: Develop company-specific risk management & handling
2. Detect labour issues: Use unconventional tools to understand local context & address root causes 
3. Empower suppliers: Implement ethical trading in partnership with suppliers to enforce standards 
4. Victims’ support: Develop policies & programmes to demonstrate your support 
5. Your statement in the spotlight: Legal repercussions vs. sharing your progress & how much exposure it should receive
6. UK & international regulation: Stay updated with developments, compliance and enforcement
