Responding to The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act has focused company attention on the presence of human trafficking and modern-day slavery in supply chains. Yet standard social compliance responses will not be adequate to reduce company risks - or worker vulnerability - to these egregious problems. In our White Paper, Compliance is Not Enough: Best Practices in Responding to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, Verité outlines the content of the Act, the sources of trafficking and forced labor risk, and what is necessary in order to address these problems adequately in supply chain production.
