Workshop: The Modern Slavery Act in Practice
The Modern Slavery Act in Practice – Strategies & Processes for Action
29th August | Sydney
by The Supply Chain Sustainability School, GHD & ISCA
The Modern Slavery Acts now apply to companies with a turnover over $50M in NSW and revenue over $100M across Australia. What does this mean for the construction, infrastructure and property sectors and how does it play out on the ground?
This half-day workshop showcases how leaders in the sector are preparing for the requirements of the Act and implementing change throughout their supply chain for greater transparency as well as raising awareness of human rights and modern slavery issues.
Through case studies, a panel discussion and peer-to-peer learning we will dive into the strategies, processes and actions required to shift practices to a new level, towards the eradication of modern slavery up and down our supply chains.
This event is particularly relevant for procurement, compliance, risk, sustainability and project management roles.
We aim to provide you with a greater understanding of the new Modern Slavery Legislation, what it means for Australian government, business and industry through providing –
- detailed knowledge from industry leaders on how their Modern Slavery Strategy has been implemented across various business units and how this plays out in practice
- an understanding of the Modern Slavery Reporting Requirements, public procurement implications and longer term challenges and opportunities
- connection to industry experts and the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals
