BSR is a supporting organization of the Anti-Slavery Summit hosted by Thomson Reuters on August 29 in Hong Kong.

The Anti-Slavery Summit will focus on how technology, data, and regulation can tackle this crime. The event aims to increase the business perspective and focus, partnering with corporations, governments, and NGOs, sharing best practice on how to break the chain of slavery in supply chains. The summit will showcase how technology from blockchain to digital identity, along with data solutions and enhanced risk procedures and regulation, can tackle slavery. The event will contain 4 streams: the role of the financial industry; how regulation and legal frameworks can help; models to create transparent supply chains; and driving change through technology and data.

BSR Senior Advisor Mark Devadason will moderate the panel session “Banking solutions—driving collaboration and following the money” at the summit.
