Business and religious groups join forces to end modern slavery | Sustainable Procurement News |

Australian mining magnate Andrew Forrest has challenged Australian business leaders to wipe slavery out of their supply chains and backed calls for tougher rules in this country.
Mr Forrest has joined forces with faith groups calling for new legislation to outlaw modern slavery and forced labour, which is on the rise.
Writing on behalf of 18 national faith leaders has called on the federal government for an act of Parliament to discourage slavery-like conditions.
"As faith leaders united against modern slavery, we express our concerns about the welfare and human rights of thousands of migrant workers who are either at risk of or are experiencing forced labour in Australia," the letter says.
