“Three things the Modern Slavery Act has achieved” – Innovation Forum – April 19, 2017

On April 19, 2017 the editorial team at Innovation Forum outlined three things the Modern Slavery Act has achieved.

According to the editorial, “(b)y forcing businesses to put out board director-signed statements every year, detailing an intent to get a grip on social issues within supplier companies, the act has, in many cases, brought such issues into boardroom conversations for the very first time.”

The legislation has achieved the following:

  1. “It started the ball rolling – and offers huge potential for transformation
  2. Other governments have followed suit, helping level the playing field.
  3. It gives companies a chance to innovate.”
