5 year anniversary of California law on human trafficking: KnowtheChain initiative expands

See all tags

New Website

KnowTheChain has announced its expansion to help companies improve corporate transparency and responsible supply chain management practices. KnowTheChain was originally created to document corporate compliance with the California Supply Chain Transparency Act (SB 657). 

Since the passage of SB 657, new laws and regulations in the United States, United Kingdom, and European Union are emerging that require corporations to disclose their efforts to eradicate forced labor from their supply chains. As this trend gains momentum, corporations are increasingly expected to operate transparently and responsibly.  

KnowTheChain, is a resource for businesses and investors, who need to understand and address forced labor abuses within their supply chains. The site is led by Humanity United, and maintained through partnerships with the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, Sustainalytics, and Verité. KnowTheChain provides insights and resources to enable companies to comply with growing legal obligations, and to more effectively identify and adopt responsible supply chain management practices. www.knowthechain.org
