Modern Slavery Compliance

The Modern Slavery Bill came into force in January 2019. Large companies are now required to produce an annual Modern Slavery Statement which discloses their operations and supply chain, how they may contribute to modern slavery and what they are doing to address those risks.

As with Edge’s other procurement services, the core of our solutions are tools, expertise and methods that efficiently measure impacts throughout complex supply chains. We help organisations:

  • Understand why Modern Slavery is relevant and where their supply chain risk 
  • Visualise the supply chain and develop awareness around modern slavery risk
  • Prioritise risk for mitigation and plan risk management actions 
  • Develop policies, processes and systems to integrate in procurement processes
  • Work with suppliers to implement solutions
  • Go beyond basic compliance with the legislation, offering an immense opportunity for organisations to position themselves as leaders in ethical supply chains and transparency

Our modern slavery work spans a wide range of sectors, from construction to food and fashion. This experience ensures that we are well-placed to help clients with up-to-date “outside the box” thinking in this rapidly evolving space. Our projects also include a particularly strong track record with the property sector, including as a technical partner in the development of the Property Council of Australia’s supplier platform.
