Supply chains have

never been this global;

nor this complex.

Transparency and collaboration are needed to protect workers and drive ethical business practices.

The Bali Process Government and Business Forum (GABF) provides a strategic platform for collaboration. It brings together influential business leaders and ministers from 45 countries and four UN organisations.

Why business should act

Businesses have both a moral and legal obligation to protect workers and combat forced labour in their supply chains.

The cost of inaction is too great.

Business & Investor Toolkit

Walk Free’s toolkit helps business and investors take action to improve human rights standards in their supply chains and combat forced labour, human trafficking and other forms of modern slavery. We have curated these resources into six categories:

  • Understanding the problem
  • Supply chain due diligence, codes of conduct, corrective action and remedy
  • Legal obligations and frameworks
  • Modern slavery reporting
  • Financial sector tools
  • Mitigating impacts of COVID-19 on vulnerable workers

A government & business partnership

In 2002, the Bali Process on People Smuggling, Trafficking in Persons and Related Transnational Crime was established to improve regional cooperative efforts on these issues. In 2017, the private sector was invited to join this most crucial dialogue to eradicate forced labour from supply chains.

Upcoming events

Due to the current global coronavirus pandemic and its impact on international travel and events, the Bali Process Government and Business Forum will not convene in person in 2020.

We expect to convene a number of webinars throughout this year and will post information about these shortly.
