Ethixbase360’s annual e-book provides insights into the human rights landscape, global legislation, and proactive strategies to address modern slavery.
The e-book highlights the importance of corporate social responsibility and the economic impact of the pandemic in shaping long-term value creation. Recent scandals, such as the exploitation of workers in Kenyan tea farms and child labor in U.S. meat processing plants, underscore the consequences of noncompliance.
