Microphone Weekly podcast: why there’s been a transformation in corporate action on modern slavery

The critical human rights risks, and how to know what your business needs to focus on

This week: Phil Bloomer, executive director of the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, on why companies just can’t afford to have modern slavery in their operations or supply chain, not least because the investment community is now properly addressing human rights risks. And highlights from Innovation Forum’s recent business and materiality webinar featuring Fiat Chrysler’s Bill Hall, Kellogg’s Amy Braun and the Erb Institute’s Terry Nelidov. Plus, $6.4tn worth of asset managers focusing on beef and deforestation, big brands still linked to dirty palm oil according to Greenpeace and how insects are spreading plastic microfibres, in the news roundup.
