David Baggs, CEO and Program Director of Global GreenTag International is presenting solutions for cost effective compliance around Modern Slavery and Ethical Supply Chains to companies next week in Brisbane at the National Sustainability Conference.
Following NSW and the Federal Governments having enacted Modern Slavery Legislation, Modern Slavery reporting is now or will shortly be, required for companies with turnover in excess of $50 million and $100 million respectively. Both pieces of legislation draw heavily from the UK Legislation introduced 5 years ago.
Global GreenTag has been in a collaboration with BRE Global from the UK to bring their Ethical Labour Sourcing (ELS) platform ELS-ONLINE to Australia to make cost effective year of year reporting a possibility. Just returned from the UK and Europe, David comments:
“We are strongly pushing ahead to ensure that we can provide a trusted and proven service in Modern Slavery reporting for the Australian market.”
David’s paper for the National Sustainability Conference on April 2 will be comparing the Modern Slavery Act (NSW) and the National Act in Australia to the UK Act. He will demonstrate how the ELS-ONLINE Portal works and discuss how Companies and Professionals can engage with the portal.
