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 five 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

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.


“Business and government must find durable solutions to the root causes of human trafficking and forced labour.”

H.E. Retno L.P. Marsudi,

Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs


Acknowledge. Act. Advance.

The Government and Business Forum agreed a framework for business and government to combat human trafficking, forced labour, modern slavery and the worst forms of child labour.
