On 28 January, Brodies LLP said that identifying and addressing the risks of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking (MSHT) is an essential component of Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) compliance. It also says that a new report illustrates that the financial services sector is also vulnerable to MSHT. The report, published in collaboration with the UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, illustrates that MSHT risks are prevalent in the financial services sector and that it has some way to go to address these risks.
PREVENTING MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING: AN AGENDA FOR ACTION ACROSS THE FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR
This report, published by Themis is the culmination of a year-long research and outreach project led by Themis in partnership with The Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner’s Office (IASC), and TRIBE Freedom Foundation. The main objectives of the project was to draw attention to the issue of MSHT, highlight the linkages within the financial services industry, and sound a call to action for the industry as a whole.
