Modern Slavery: Shedding Light on Forced Labor Risk in the Global Supply Chain
Between the introduction of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act, effective as of last month, the release of the US State Department’s annual human trafficking report, and investigative reports by the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, one of the hidden scourges of the global economy is being exposed to the light. Forced labor – whether in fishing, palm oil plantations, construction, or other work – may pose an ESG risk in the supply chains of global companies.
What are the disclosure and potential reputational implications of the recent UK legislation? What are the potential risks to institutional investors of forced labor in global supply chains?
