COVID, ESGs and Going to the Moon: How Business Can Unite to Eliminate Forced Labor
“The Private Sector will eliminate forced labor from its supply chains by 2030 without a negative effect on productivity.
|Ending modern slavery in the private sector requires a collective goal and an agreed timeframe. |
Right now, those don’t exist. That means a large number of highly committed people are working hard to fight this inhuman practice, but there is limited evidence of effective progress.
Establishing the ambitious but achievable goal of ending modern slavery in corporate supply chains by 2030 will bring together their disparate efforts and free millions of people from exploitative labour practices. And it won’t force business to choose between what is right, what is sustainable and what is profitable.
Join this webinar to learn more about the 2020 ‘moon goal’ for modern slavery as the Mekong Club, Research and Communications Group (RCG) and Ashbury Communications launch their new paper, “COVID, ESG and Going to the Moon: How Business Can Unite to Eliminate Forced Labour.”
The webinar coincides with CNN’s #MyFreedomDay, a global, student-driven event that raises awareness about modern slavery. Details of the webinar are as follows:
Matt Friedman, CEO, The Mekong Club
Phil Marshall, Director of Private Sector Engagement, Research and Communications Group
Adam Harper, Managing Director, Ashbury Communications
Like setting a goal of putting a man on the moon, great things can be accomplished when people are drawn together by a common vision. Join us and others in the private sector to end modern slavery.
