Applications are now open for the Thomson Reuters Foundation Stop Slavery Award 2022. The Stop Slavery Award recognizes and celebrates those dedicated to the fight against all forms of modern slavery and human trafficking.
In collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor, and in consultation with leading actors in the anti-slavery space, the Thomson Reuters Foundation launched the Stop Slavery Award in 2015 to recognize companies who can be considered “best-in-class” based on the policies and the processes they have in place to limit the risk of slavery in their supply chain and operations, as well as the role they are playing as key agents in the global fight against slavery.
To create a virtuous cycle or positive paradigm by demonstrating that businesses can indeed play a critical role in stopping the tragedy of modern slavery worldwide:
- to help guide consumers’ and customers’ decisions on what goods they decide to buy or use;
- to raise awareness about the issues of forced labour, the worst forms of child labour, and other forms of modern slavery;
- to inspire more companies to investigate and improve the working conditions of those at the bottom of their supply chains;
- to raise awareness of the invaluable work and effort of CSOs and grassroots organisations working on the front lines in the fight against modern slavery;
- to recognise and celebrate the impact that companies and organisations can have to influence policy and legislation;
