In Episode 5, we examine the relationship between modern slavery and institutional investing. Institutional investors have a key role to play in fostering business practices that help end modern slavery and human trafficking. In this episode we discuss how institutional investors are addressing modern slavery risks in their investment decision-making, as well as the ways they are working collaboratively to engage companies to find, fix and prevent modern slavery.
