As highlighted as a good example of a private sector initiative by UN Special Rapporteur on Trafficking in Persons, this Guidance aims to provide support for BSCI participants and producers to help identify, prevent and mitigate abuses and exploitation of Syrian refugees in their supply chains in Turkey.
FTA is disappointed by the Thai court decision that has found rights activist Andy Hall guilty of criminal defamation, and concerned about the adverse impact it will have on the defence of human rights in the country.
FTA has reaffirmed its support to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) by submitting its Communication on Engagement (COE). This action demonstrates FTA’s commitment towards sustainable and responsible business practices and policies.
On 12 July 2016, Forética and FTA hosted an event on the importance of transparency and integrity in the supply chain. This meeting also marked the launch of the newest National Contact Group in Spain.
The meeting provided an opportunity to identify good practices and challenges, exchange lessons learned across sectors and initiatives, reinforce efforts and collaborate in addressing trafficking in persons.
