Summary & key words

In October 2015, complying with the UK Modern Slavery Act became a legal requirement for at least 12,000 companies in the UK and around the world. ETI partnered with the Ashridge Centre for Business and Sustainability at Hult International Business School to produce this snapshot study into company perspectives and responses to the risks of modern slavery in their global supply chains. We engaged with a range of companies that are already actively managing labour standards in their supply chains. Participants were brands, retailers and suppliers from across clothing, grocery, department store, home and garden retail, beverage, fresh produce and health and personal care sectors.
