Today 45.8 million men, women and children are estimated to be victims of trafficking, forced labour or coercion around the world.*

 

90% are enslaved by private enterprise.*

 

In a global economy where resources and suppliers are scattered across continents transparency is harder to achieve but more important than ever.

 

Businesses are the lever to change on modern slavery and ChainChecked works to help them take action.

The UK is taking a lead on the fight against modern slavery, introducing the Modern Slavery Act in the autumn of 2015.

 

The Act requires all companies with a turnover of £36 million per year or greater, and with some activity in the UK, to publish an annual statement detailing the measures they are taking to ensure there is no modern slavery within their business or supply chain.

 

Statements are expected to be published alongside a company's financial year end reporting or within 6 months of this, beginning with the 2016 financial year.
