By Motoko Aizawa

IHRB, The Guardian and Humanity United co-organised a one-day summit on 11th April 2014 designed to build the business case for effective management of risks related to human trafficking and forced labour throughout multinational supply chains.

IHRB's Motoko Aizawa spoke on the tools within the IFC sustainability framework which can be used to monitor supply chains.
