“UK firms must act to ensure supply chains are slavery free” – Supply Management – October 16, 2014

In an article published on Supply Management on October 16, 2014 Will Green reports that “UK big businesses will have to publicly state each year what action they have taken to ensure their supply chains are slavery free, the Home Office (HO) has announced.

The measure, welcomed by David Noble, Group CEO, UK Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS), will be included in the Modern Slavery Bill, currently going through parliament, and will affect firms providing goods or services, by going ‘further than any similar legislation in the world by applying to businesses regardless of the nature of a company or what it supplies’”.
