Modern Slavery Risk—How to Research it. How to Reduce it
About this talk
Modern slavery is a clear risk to people and a growing concern globally. This social evil is so pervasive that consumers can unknowingly encounter modern slavery, and investors can have unintended exposures to it within their portfolios. While the industry is still in the early stages of what will likely be a long journey to identify and root out modern slavery, investors, companies and fund managers can all play critical roles.
In this webinar, Saskia Kort-Chick, Director of ESG Research and Engagement—Responsible Investing, walks us through the steps that we as investors can take, through comprehensive research and engagement with companies, to not only identify, assess and report on modern slavery risks (and opportunities) but also strive to reduce them. This is the right thing to do, and it can drive better outcomes for investments and the world.
