Today, the International Labour Organization reports at least 40 million people are living in conditions of forced labour. These victims are found in every country and every industry. And it’s estimated that 16 million of them are trapped in corporate supply chains.
Slavery is not a relic of the past. It’s embedded within big business. These numbers are higher than at any other time in recorded history, but they don’t have to grow. We all have a role to play—especially the private sector. With dedicated leadership, companies can champion efforts to eradicate forced labor in their business strategy and culture from top to bottom.
