Given the rapid development of initiatives aimed at helping businesses fight human trafficking, the RESPECT Initiative (comprising Babson College’s Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime and the International Organization for Migration (IOM)), the Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking (GBCAT), and the United Nations Global Compact through its Action Platform on Decent Work in Global Supply Chains, have identified the urgent need to provide a unified repository of information as a resource to facilitate stakeholders in their engagement with the private sector in the fight against human trafficking.

The Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Human Trafficking Organisations (www.modernslaverymap.org) and the accompanying report are designed with the following in mind:

  • The private sector – to help companies navigate emerging partners and resources;
  • All anti-trafficking organisations; and
  • The general public

With 75 organisations and initiatives included, who are working on five human-trafficking-related issues (child labour, forced labour, etc.), covering eleven industries and eight regions, the Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Human Trafficking Organisations aims to improve coordination on the eradication of modern slavery, and provides a unique baseline from which existing and newly formed initiatives can move forward.

This project is also supported by the Alliance 8.7, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and the International Labour Organization’s Global Business Network on Forced Labour and Human Trafficking.

The Launch event was held at BT Centre, 81 Newgate Street, London, EC1A, United Kingdom on 22 May, 2018, 5:00–7:00 pm (BST). The event was also livestreamed on RESPECT Youtube channel.
