Tuesday Feb. 19, 12:40-2pm - Can People, Planet & Profit Coexist? Forced Labor & Global Supply Chains
While it is easy to celebrate the fact that unemployment in the developed world is at historically low levels, and that labor productivity around the world is rising, there remains a dark underside to the global supply chains which are responsible for many of the products we buy and consume every day including coffee, tea, chocolate and clothing.  The International Labor Organization estimates over 25 million people are exploited by forced labor practices around the globe. 

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals call for the promotion of inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. This panel will help educate about the prevalence of forced labor, and also how business and policy leaders alike are helping to eradicate forced labor using innovative and ethical practices. Leading corporations today not only see eliminating forced labor as a human rights issue, but as an issue of corporate sustainability and business competitiveness. 
Hosted by: The Freedom Café & The UNH Center for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship
