To accelerate the eradication of modern slavery from infrastructure supply chains.

The ISC Modern Slavery Coalition was established in 2019 in response to the introduction of the Australian Modern Slavery Act. This coalition aims to accelerate the eradication of modern slavery from infrastructure’s supply chains by shifting industry from a place of reactive compliance to one of transformational leadership.

The International Labour Organisation estimates there are over 40 million victims of modern slavery globally. Modern slavery includes a range of severe exploitive practices, including slavery; servitude; forced labour; debt bondage; abuse of vulnerability and other means for the purpose of exploitation. Of the estimated 40 million victims, 25 million people were victims of forced labour of which 18% are in the construction sector.
