The UK Modern Slavery Act

In 2015 the United Kingdom published the UK modern slavery Act. The act forces every company matching a turnover of more than 36 Million £ per year (in UK) to declare in a public statement the measures to prevent slavery and servitude, forced or compulsory labor and human trafficking in its value chain. In 2017 for the first time Bayer publishes its statement to fulfill the UK Modern Slavery Act in relation to Section 54 of the Act.
