Deadline: 26 August 2016
The Thomson Reuters Foundation is seeking nominations for its “Stop Slavery Award” which is a high-profile award as part of a drive aimed at engaging the world’s biggest companies in the fight against forced labour.
The goal will be to recognize those corporations who can be considered “best in class,” based on the policies and the processes they have in place to limit the risk of slavery in their supply chain, as well as on the role they are taking as key agents in the global fight against slavery.
The Stop Slavery Award is the first global accolade to recognize businesses that have excelled in efforts to try to eradicate forced labour from their supply chains. It will award businesses that have demonstrated integrity, courage and innovation by scrutinising their own supply chains and by taking the necessary steps to remove instances of forced labour.
The Thomson Reuters Foundation acts to promote socio-economic progress and the rule of law worldwide. The organisation runs initiatives that inform, connect and ultimately empower people around the world: access to free legal assistance, media development and training, editorial coverage of the world’s under-reported stories, and the Trust Women conference.
- The awarded companies will receive the right to use the Stop Slavery Award logo for one year.
- The display of the logo will help guide consumer and customer decisions, and contribute to raise cross‑sector awareness about the issue of forced labour, encouraging more companies to investigate, improve, and eradicate unfair and illegal labour practices in their supply chains.
