Australian consumers are becoming ethically-minded and businesses are taking note, according to a news report by the ABC. Consumers want responsible businesses, there’s a rising expectation for businesses to have a social purpose and have a larger than profit reason for existence. Added to this, Australia has a new Modern Slavery Act which requires large businesses to submit a Modern Slavery Statement that identifies the risk of slavery in their supply chain and a plan to mitigate that risk. Smaller businesses can submit a ‘voluntary’ modern slavery statement to help fight this crime and demonstrate they care.
The Freedom Hub is a registered Australian Charity that runs ethical businesses where 100% of profits go towards supporting survivors of modern slavery in our Survivor School.
TFH Ethical Business Services provide:
1. Modern Slavery Act compliance training for all business enterprises, large and small. Find out about our End Modern Slavery Workshops. or ask us about our bespoke training for your team or your stakeholders.
