Applications are open for the Stop Slavery Award, launched by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, as an action resulting from the 2015 Trust Women Conference.
The initiative recognises companies that have taken concrete steps to eradicate forced labour from their supply chains. The aim is to create a virtuous cycle, a positive paradigm to demonstrate that business can play a critical role in putting an end to modern-day slavery worldwide.
The Stop Slavery Award gives public recognition to corporations that are ‘best in class’ at demonstrating integrity, courage and innovation in cleaning their supply chains.
- Forced labor includes all work or service that is exacted from any person under the threat of penalty and for which the worker has not offered himself voluntarily including debt bondage and other forms of servitude;
- Other forms of servitude include any practice in which an individual exerts ownership or control over another in such a way as to significantly deprive that person of his or her individual liberty, with the intention of exploiting that person through his or her use, profit, transfer or disposal; and
- The worst forms of child labor, including the ownership, sale, trafficking or forced labor of children; the use, procuring, or offering of children for prostitution, pornography or illicit activities; or the use of children in work which, by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out, is likely to harm the health, safety or morals of children as a consequence.
The initiative invites companies who have demonstrated that business can play a critical role in putting an end to modern-day slavery worldwide.
