Regulations such as the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (2010), the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive (2014), and the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015) have turned the spotlight on human rights issues as a major financial and reputational risk for companies and their supply chains. No company wants to be the subject of a human rights abuse violation.
We are excited to announce that iPoint, in partnership with Compliance Week, the leading information service on corporate governance, risk, and compliance, has published the eBook "Preventing Worldwide Human Rights Abuses". In this eBook, chief compliance officers, chief risk officers, and in-house counsel will learn everything they need to know about how to mitigate such a risk. Among other things, this eBook takes a look at what regulatory efforts are underway in countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia, to better detect forced labor, and what compliance implications, and legal risk, this creates for companies.
The eBook also includes a white paper by Tolga Yaprak, iPoint’s Senior Consultant for CSR as well as Anti-Human Trafficking and Conflict Minerals Compliance, which focuses on "Human trafficking in corporate value chains: A management guide for effective compliance".
