Microphone Is slavery the greatest human rights risk for business?

Legislators and investors are helping to push companies to think more about human rights

Yousuf Aftab, principal at Enodo Rights, explains to Ian Welsh why modern slavery is both a salient and material risk for companies. Given the legal trends – slavery is the area that legislators worldwide are now targeting – business has no option but to take notice and engage on the issues. Aftab outlines why the move of mainstream investors, such as Black Rock, to ask companies more and more questions about modern slavery and human rights is another key trend that corporate leaders can’t ignore.
