On 3 June, a release on Business Wire reported that a project based at the UN University Centre for Policy Research and ACAMS, a leading international membership organisation of financial crime prevention professionals, have launched a new modern day slavery and human trafficking certificate for financial sector actors. The training introduces the steps that financial sector actors should take to meet the growing requirements to identify, report, mitigate and remedy modern slavery and human trafficking risks. It covers AML/CFT obligations; environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, and human rights and enterprise risk management. It draws on insights from industry leaders and recent cases.  The course is free and is delivered online.  It comprises video lessons developed by industry experts, roughly 2 hours of overall coursework, and a 30-minute online post-assessment.
