Reducing slavery risk in the value chain
ADAS help organisations to understand which parts of their value chain are most vulnerable to instances of Modern Slavery.
According to recent estimates, 16 million people around the world are victims of forced labour exploitation. Slavery is not a thing of the past, and still occurs in every country in the world – including in advanced economies such as the UK. Modern Slavery can take many forms and can be hard to detect and agricultural value chains are at risk. Organisations need to be vigilant in their policies and practices to reduce the risk of Modern Slavery.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 puts organisations under increasing pressure to demonstrate that their value chains are free from Modern Slavery. Organisations with a turnover in excess of £36m are required to produce an annual Modern Slavery Statement. The statement should detail what steps the organisation has taken to ensure its own business and supply chains are free from Modern Slavery.
ADAS can help you understand and build compliance to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We can establish your system of policies, procedures, strategic actions, priorities and reporting. We can work across your entire value chain to build effective controls. Our aim is to ensure that the message on Modern Slavery is widely understood and appropriate practices are embedded.
ADAS can help your organisation develop and implement practical strategies to reduce the risk of Modern Slavery across your value chain, see our key services.
