Supply Management magazine is a publication of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS). The February 2016 print and online edition feature on Modern Day Slavery lauds the efforts of Patagonia and Nestlé for facing up to the reality that forced labor exists in corporate supply chains and focusing on efforts to effectively address the problem.
Previous Vision articles have featured Verité’s work with companies like Hewlett-Packard, Patagonia, Nestlé, and others that are forthrightly tackling the risks of forced labor that exist in every global supply chain, and in every sector, that employs migrant workers.
We welcome the fact that media outlets and trade associations are highlighting the steps being taken by those multinational companies that have recognized that allowing forced labor to persist in their supply chains is not only unethical, but presents risks for their business.
