Modern slavery is the severe exploitation of other people for personal or commercial gain. Modern slavery is all around us, but often just out of sight. People can become entrapped making our clothes, serving our food, picking our crops, working in factories, or working in houses as cooks, cleaners or nannies.
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that at any given time there are 40.3 million people in modern slavery, including 24.9 million in forced labour and 15.4 million in forced marriage. Of those people trapped in forced labour more than 16 million people are exploited in the private sector such as domestic work, construction or agriculture.
Brogan Group is committed to ensuring a proactive approach is taken in tackling hidden labour exploitation within our own business and reducing these practices in our wider supply chain.
