We will be exploring the challenges in addressing MDS, progress made since the Modern Slavery Act, and emerging best-practice, ahead of Anti-Slavery Day on the 18th October. We will also hear updates from the waste and resources sector, given recent reports that two thirds of UK modern slavery victims have been involved in the sector, to explore progress to-date and how the sector is addressing this.
