ACSI encourages businesses of all sizes and industries to assess their exposure to modern slavery. We firmly believe that companies’ responsibility to limit their exposure to modern slavery practices is a financial one, not just an ethical one.
These statements are the result of a thorough examination of our key suppliers and their supply chains, evaluation of the areas of risk that we have identified, and the steps we are taking in order to mitigate that risk. While ACSI is not legally obliged to report under the Modern Slavery Act (2018), we are mirroring what we would like to see from other organisations and businesses.
These statements demonstrate how useful it can be for businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors to undergo regular examinations of their own business operations, and to question the supplies and services used.
