As part of its first campaign, Concordia hosted a panel on labor trafficking at this year’s annual Summit. One of the panelists was Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, who in July introduced the Business Supply Chain Transparency on Trafficking and Slavery Act of 2015. The bill requires public companies with over $100 million in global gross receipts to disclose any measures to prevent human trafficking, slavery, and child labor in their supply chains. This piece of legislation is similar to the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, which was signed into law in 2010. 

This summer, Concordia contributed to a KnowTheChain project to analyze the California law and provide lessons learned and key recommendations for future such laws. Read the full Insights Brief here.
