Businesses operating in global supply chains are more likely to encounter situations of forced labor or other forms of modern slavery than their multinational counterparts, yet many lack simple guidance on how to identify, prevent, and manage these risks effectively.

To address this gap, this toolkit from the Global Business Coalition against Human Trafficking (GBCAT) aims to help businesses that work in corporate supply chains to quickly identify areas of the business which carry the highest risk of modern slavery and develop a plan to identify, prevent, and address risks. While the toolkit is designed particularly for small- and medium-sized enterprises, it can help businesses of all sizes who are new to understanding modern slavery risks.

GBCAT has also released a one-page infographic highlighting practices to avoid the use of forced labor and has compiled a list of resources for suppliers for additional guidance on its supplier portal.
