RepRisk releases Special Report on Forced Labor
Report highlights case studies of forced labor in the Food and Beverage, Personal and Household Goods, and Construction sectors
Zurich, Switzerland – April 20, 2016 – RepRisk, the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks, has released a special report on forced labor, which includes three case studies on the sectors most associated with the illegal practice, and shows that “slave labor” is still widespread in both emerging markets and developed nations.
The publication of this report coincides with the first anniversary of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act, which requires companies headquartered in the UK to report annually on how they are monitoring slavery and human trafficking in their business and supply chains.
The aim of the report is to raise awareness of this issue and to encourage corporations to monitor their supply chains and their overseas operations to ensure that they are not exposed to the social and governance risks associated with this kind of practice.
