Church-led research will investigate links between human trafficking and FTSE 100 companies

We want to explore how human trafficking could be a part of the picture. We want to see FTSE 100 companies better informed to help them ensure there is as little risk as possible that their supply chain is somehow touched by the traffickers trade. One person is sold every 30 seconds (Finance Against Trafficking). Every year, 1.2 million children are trafficked across or within countries (UNICEF), and up to800,000 people mostly women and girls are trafficked across international borders (US Department of State Trafficking in Persons Report 2007). Supporting the research with Us are Finance Against Trafficking,Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR), andRathbone Greenbank Investments. The researchers will encourage FTSE 100 companies to adopt a best practice policy that will help uncover any risk that workers in the supply chain have been trafficked.
