Rathbones combatting modern slavery webinar

Modern slavery and human trafficking is a pervasive risk to society and to our clients' investments. It is imperative that all companies play their part in seeking to reduce the opportunities for modern slavery to occur. In 2020, continuing our long history of engagement on the topic, Rathbones led an investor coalition that engaged with FTSE350 companies that had failed to meet the s54 reporting requirements of the Modern Slavery Act. We expect members of the FTSE 350 to lead in this area, taking substantive action against the prevalence of slavery in their supply chains. Our engagement was shortlisted at the PRI 2020 Awards for the ‘Stewardship Project of the Year’.
