Commentary: Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking & partners launch map to help business collaborate with anti-slavery organisations

Author: Peter Nestor, BSR

"A map to help business collaborate with anti-slavery organisations," 22 May 2018

For business, there is both a moral and legal imperative to tackle modern slavery. As the number of legislative initiatives around this issue have increased, initiatives and collaborations to help business address human trafficking and modern slavery have multiplied. While the recent proliferation of organizations addressing this problem is encouraging, it also poses a problem for companies: How should you find the most relevant partners to work with or collaborations to join?

To answer this question, the Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking (GBCAT) partnered with the United Nations Global Compact and the RESPECT Initiative (comprised of the Global InitiativeBabson College's Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, and IOM) to develop an online, interactive mapping of organizations and initiatives tackling modern slavery... This interactive map of anti-human trafficking organizations responds to frequent requests from companies for help navigating the constellation of modern slavery initiatives. Drawing from a database of over 100 organizations, the map allows the user to filter organizations by type (initiative, NGO, foundation); issue (e.g. child labor, forced labor, recruitment); geography; and industry.

Commentary: Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking focuses on survivor employment & support for SMEs

Author: Mark P. Lagon, Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking

"Undoing slavery: business coalition tackles unmet needs," 17 May 2018

[The vision of the]... Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking (GBCAT)... focuses on three areas where business can carry out a unique role in the anti-trafficking movement: (1) support small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in our supply chains to understand and right-size their response to modern slavery; (2) support survivors in breaking the cycle of entrapment and getting empowered and employed; and (3) help other global businesses navigate the complex landscape of anti-slavery organizations and resources... GBCAT member companies are “all in” to tackle these three unmet needs. Other businesses should not only take advantage of the advice and best practices that GBCAT has to offer, they should join the alliance and stand shoulder to shoulder with these far-reaching and iconic companies. Doing so will deliver value for a company’s shareholders, employees, customers, communities, and partners—and most of all for the women and men who avoid or transcend trafficking. Globalization need not cause slavery, and businesses have a valuable leadership role to play in making sure that’s the case.
