The Consumer Goods Forum has teamed up with The B Team, and other key partners, to bring you an event which will focus on the importance of collaboration between business leaders and governments to eradicate forced labour. We will examine how together we can get to the root causes and systemic drivers of the issue, and look at some simple steps that business leaders can take to enact change at scale.

Event overview

During this event, speakers will share industry best practices, and explore the importance of collaborative action in bringing about widespread industry change. Keynote speakers will be announced shortly, but will include a selection of prominent CEOs, representatives from civil society organisations and senior government representatives from the Canadian government. We will explore in greater detail the legislative context of our host country, Canada, which has just elected Sheri Meyerhoffer as its first corporate ethics ombudsperson to hold Canadian companies accountable for human-rights abuses abroad. Canada is also working on following in the footsteps of its Commonwealth partners Australia and the United Kingdom to ratify the ILO Forced Labour protocol.

Join us in June to be part of the coalition of business leaders, governments, and civil society organisations helping to lead the movement to eradicate forced labour.
