Modern slavery can affect any business, in any sector and any supply chain. It is often hidden but is closer than we think. This risk of slavery exists in the raw materials and finished goods you are purchasing, in the casual labour of your distribution centres, and in your office cleaning or catering services.

77% of companies operating within the UK think there is a likelihood of modern slavery occurring in their supply chains.
Ethical Trading Initiative and Hult Business School

Anti-Slavery International first identified slavery in supply chains as a key issue in the fight against slavery over two decades ago. Today, the responsibility of business to respect human rights is widely recognised and we remain at the forefront of this movement.
