Breaking the Chains: Addressing Modern Slavery As a Matter of Good Sustainability Practice

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review

Abstract

This chapter assesses the intricate linkage between modern slavery and sustainable business practices. It demonstrates the significance for organisations of addressing modern slavery as an integral part of good sustainability practice. Modern slavery is a grave violation of human rights, and not only disrupts societal harmony but also poses a significant challenge to the three pillars of sustainability - environment, economy, and society. Utilising Dutch retail giants Albert Heijn as a case study, this chapter provides essential recommendations that can help bolster an organisation’s efforts to eliminate modern slavery from within its operations and supply chains.
