Event description

Description

With more than 45 million people estimated to be in conditions of Modern Slavery worldwide, the Australian Parliament considering submissions about the introduction of a Modern Slavery Act, and countries including the UK, France and the USA enacting measures requiring companies to increase awareness, transparency and action around modern slavery in their supply chains, how can Australia’s property and construction sectors learn, adapt and flourish?

Come along to this FREE event for private sector building, property and construction professionals - particularly those in procurement, compliance, risk, sustainability and project management roles - and:

  • Understand what is meant by ‘Modern Slavery’ and the key risk areas
  • Find out how Modern Slavery touches Australian supply chains
  • Learn about how businesses in the UK have adapted to the Modern Slavery Act of 2015
  • Hear cross-sectoral case studies of Australian organisations and changes they’ve made
  • Discover how decisions will be made around procurement, products and materials
  • Find out what questions you can be asking and what information you can be tracking
  • Work with industry peers on some of the key issues surrounding Modern Slavery
  • Consider what true social, economic and environmental sustainability looks like.
