The Investor Alliance for Human Rights are leading an investor statement in support of a robust EU regulation on forced labour. The European Commission published their proposal on 14th September 2022. To sign the statement please add your details here. Send Qs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the significant rise in modern slavery across global value chains, there is an urgent need for meaningful action and laws to tackle the exploitation of workers around the world. The proposed European Commission’s legislative proposal to prohibit products made with forced labor from entering the EU market is a welcomed step to help eliminate forced labor across the world, but there is a need to go further to provide remedy and recourse to workers who are impacted.
Through this Investor Statement in Support of Robust Forced Labor Regulations, the IAHR are calling for the EU regulatory bodies to consider and include changes to the proposed regulation to ensure a positive impact on workers throughout the value chain and that activities in the EU market and globally are conducted in a responsible manner. This will support and enable continued rights-respecting investments towards a sustainable and resilient global economy.
