Register now for the UN Global Compact Network Australia (UNGCNA) and Maritime Union of Australia’s (MUA) launch of our latest guidance publication on Thursday 8 December 2022 4:00pm-5:30pm (AEDT) either in-person or virtually.
Modern Slavery within Maritime Shipping Supply Chains: Guidance for Australian Businesses in Identifying, Managing, and Mitigating Modern Slavery Risks within Maritime Shipping
Despite being identified as a key area of modern slavery and human rights risk, many Australian businesses are still in the early stages of identifying, managing, and mitigating human rights impacts associated with shipping.
In partnership with the MUA and the International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) Australian Inspectorate, the publication aims to increase awareness of modern slavery risks factors present within the maritime context, and provide businesses with an overview of the standards in place to protect seafarers’ human rights. This publication has been made possible by funding provided by the Attorney General’s Department (previously Australian Border Force), as part of the National Action Plan to Combat Modern Slavery (2020-25).
Join us at the hybrid publication launch event to gain an insight into the findings of the publication such as practical steps for cargo owners in integrating respect for seafarers’ rights into the risk management and procurement process.
