Cleaning Up the Supply Chain: Human Trafficking and Slavery

It is estimated by Walk Free that 30 million men, women and children are held in forced labor and servitude. It is a $32 billion business and growing. The fight against slavery and human trafficking is a cultural, ethical, and moral imperative for all businesses to insure there are no slaves or forces labor workers in the supply chain. In the age of professed transparency and the ways in which fundamental human rights are being challenged, it is critical that businesses take a stand against profits coming from any sort of human trafficking. By cutting off the revenue and supply chain at a business level you cut off the ability of those who enslave and traffic to make a living on the back of others.
