Today is Anti-Slavery Day, providing the opportunity to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern slavery. The 2018 Global Slavery Index estimates that there are 136,000 modern slaves in the UK at any one time. The International Labour Organization (ILO) also state that 84% of all modern slavery cases occur in the private sector and that one of the high-risk industries is construction.
Let’s continue our work in the industry and with our supply chains to fight against human trafficking and forced labour. We are stronger together.
