Benchmarking of modern slavery statements

Under the Modern Slavery Act 2018, large businesses and entities with annual consolidated revenue of at least AUS$100 million are required to prepare a Modern Slavery Statement, which sets out their actions to address modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chains.

Together, the Anti-slavery Taskforce, Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and SEDEX Australia have collaborated with more than 70 ACU Thomas More Law School law students. To date, they have contributed over 5,000 hours of review and analysis in ranking almost 1,500 modern slavery statements with the pro bono program and with research design advice from the Auckland University Centre for Research on Modern Slavery.

Attend an event at which their findings will be shared via the presentation of the Domus 8.7 Index benchmarking of Modern Slavery Statements.

ACU’s Professor Patrick Keyzer Dean of Thomas More Law School, will speak about the significant contribution of our law students. The panel will also look at examples of best practice, how the findings may inform the Commonwealth Review of the Modern Slavery Act and areas of modern slavery risk management that need to be improved.

This is important work that aligns with ACU’s mission to promote the dignity of every person to act for the common good - and it demonstrates our commitment to minimising the impacts of modern slavery.
