ABOUT THE AWARD
The Stop Slavery Award was launched by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, as an action resulting from the 2015 Trust Conference.

The initiative recognises companies that have taken concrete steps to eradicate forced labour from their supply chains. The aim is to create a virtuous cycle, a positive paradigm to demonstrate that business can play a critical role in putting an end to modern-day slavery worldwide.

The Stop Slavery Award gives public recognition to corporations that are ‘best in class’ at demonstrating integrity, courage and innovation in cleaning their supply chains.

Each year winners are presented with an Anish Kapoor statue at the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s annual human rights conference, Trust Conference. As well as the statue, each winner also receives a licence to use the Stop Slavery Award logo.

The display of the logo will help guide consumer decisions and contribute to raising cross-sector awareness on the issue of forced labour, encouraging more companies to take similar action in addressing unfair and illegal labour practices in their own supply chains.

This year, the Stop Slavery Award will accept applications in two different categories: Service Companies and Goods Companies.
