The Role the Financial Sector Should Play in Supply Chain Management

11 April 2014

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.

Through a series of honest, practical, relevant and usable case studies presented by the private sector for private sector, this event gave participants extensive access to the nature and scope of modern day slavery in supply chains and to innovative practices that aim to combat it.

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