Of the many ESG concerns that impact global companies today, one of the most consequential issues found within the vendor supply chain is human exploitation, which includes forced labor. The 2021 U.S. Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) has had an immediate impact on companies since its inception. In 2022 alone, 3601 shipments were detained, seized, or destroyed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Similar acts including Europe’s Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDD) and Germany’s Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (SCDDA) increased the attention and actions of governments worldwide to eradicate forced labor in global supply chains.
Join us on Thursday, April 20th, for a complimentary Global Trade Academy webinar that details the differences between key forced labor programs, their impact on demand sensing, product sourcing, and the need for greater visibility in the supply chain to help companies meet updated legal requirements.
