The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 - FAQs

Towards the end of 2015, Greenstone ran a series of webinars focussed on providing a practical insight into addressing the UK Modern Slavery Act. These webinars were extremely popular and generated a number of questions and discussion points around the Act.

We have turned these questions into a set of FAQs for reference. Hopefully, the questions raised will reflect the issues and concerns of others and therefore provide some wider benefit. However, if you do wish to speak to us about the Modern Slavery Act or indeed how we can facilitate the data gathering process through our SupplierPortal solution, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Addressing modern slavery through SupplierPortal

In the autumn of 2015, the UK government introduced the Modern Slavery Act which seeks to address the role of businesses in preventing modern slavery from occurring in their supply chains and organisations.

The Act defines modern slavery as covering slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. Organisations captured by the Act not only need to ensure that modern slavery is not an issue in-house, they also need to take, and report on, actions to prevent the issue from occurring within their supply chains. The actions, targets and progress on these issues should be reported annually by organisations through their Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.

Deloitte, Lodestar and Greenstone partner to host free breakfast event on materiality

Greenstone has partnered with Deloitte and Lodestar to host a free breakfast event in London on Wednesday 27th January on 'Bridging the materiality gap - global practice and practical insights'. 

Defining what matters to your organisation and stakeholders is at the heart of materiality. In recent years there has been an increased focus on putting materiality at the forefront of sustainability reporting and as a result companies are increasingly experiencing pressure to define their non-financial information. 

Join Deloitte, Lodestar and Greenstone, plus speakers from GRI and URENCO Ltd, for breakfast, some thought-provoking discussion on materiality reporting and the opportunity to network with other sustainability professionals.
