Modern slavery: how to prepare a s54 statement
This Business and Management Faculty webinar took place on 17 March 2021.
A case study with Pentland
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires certain organisations to publish a section 54 transparency in supply chains statement which outlines the steps taken by the business to prevent, detect and report instances of modern slavery within its supply chain. In this webinar Sara Brennan, Positive Business Director, and Kaiesha Gibson, Corporate Responsibility Manager, explain their approach to preparing the section 54 statement for Pentland Brands, including how this has evolved over the years and the challenges faced. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
