No supply chain is free of risks associated with modern slavery. The forces of globalization that have created new economic opportunities are also fuelling the deplorable practices of debt bondage, exploitation and child labor. National governments and European Union institutions are setting up supply chain due diligence laws that go beyond disclosure, such as the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive, the French Devoir de Vigilance and the German Supply Chain Act. These require companies to take action to stop human rights abuses in their operations and supply chains and impose penalties if they fail to do so.
