The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) announced an ambitious, new resolution to fight forced labour issues throughout global supply chains, launching a rallying call to the industry. With the complexity of global supply chains, CGF recognises that eradication of forced labour remains a key challenge. Driving this global collaboration would help address forced labour as one of the most pressing social issues of our time.
Successfully fighting forced labour requires collective corporate actions which go beyond traditional compliance approaches. The work achieved by multiple efforts to support increased harmonisation of supply chain practices will be instrumental in driving this necessary change.
