Microphone Blockchain’s modern slavery transparency solutions

Mark Blick, head of government solutions at Diginex, explains to Ian Welsh how blockchain can help brands identify where the modern slavery and forced labour risks in their supply chains are – following the relevant data points and ensuring transparency.

Consumers and business customers increasingly expect transparency and point of recruitment remains a key point of labour-violation risk. Workers moving from country of origin to place of work are still paying recruitment fees running into thousands of dollars – it is crucial that workers can have verifiable copies of their contracts that they know are correct and that can be shown to be the same as the copy that is presented to auditors. A blockchain, with transparent ledger technology, can help.
