When it comes to Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, it’s fair to say that the ‘E’ has been the dominant aspect discussed in corporate boards in recent years. However, in your role as a Non-Executive Director, it’s important not to lose sight of the ‘S’ in ESG, the social pillar.

What we will cover:

  • The growing obligations and opportunities for businesses to focus on the ‘S’ in ESG
  • What modern slavery is and the obligations of business, including key risks and mitigants in businesses’ operations and supply chains
  • The requirements of the Australian Modern Slavery Act and the current review of the legislation
  • How leading businesses and boards are engaging in this topic including what steps can be taken if modern slavery risks are identified in your operations or supply chain
  • The experience of modern slavery victims and why business mitigation and remediation matters

We’re pleased to be joined by Rachel Elliot, Head of Sustainability & Human Rights, Woolworths Group and Professor Jennifer Burn, Founding Director of Anti-Slavery Australia, amongst other leading experts, to address why business must focus on mitigation and remediation, not just reporting.
