Today I am thrilled to learn that Humanity United (http://www.humanityunited.org/) has officially joined the Sustainability Incubator as a partner to develop an industry tool to help clean up seafood supply chains from forced and trafficked labor.
We are looking for industry partners who would like to participate in a pilot of the tool in late 2013/14. It is an auditing protocol for risk assessment and risk reduction in Thai seafood imports. The tool is diagnostic. It will find risk hotspots where forced and trafficked labor are brokered into supply chains for major Thai export products. The tool is also a solution. It can be employed by seafood exporter/importer pairs to clean up the supply chain for an important product from forced and trafficked labor — all of the way back to fishing vessels.
Participation is confidential however there are concrete opportunities available for positive profile of seafood leadership on this issue in the media.
