Stop Slavery Award
In November 2017, C&A was awarded the prestigious Stop Slavery Award by Thomson Reuters Foundation at its fifth annual Trust Conference in London. The award aims to demonstrate that businesses can play a critical role in putting an end to forced and bonded labour worldwide, and is given to companies that are taking concrete steps in this area.
C&A was presented with the award in 2017 for our best-in-class demonstration of integrity and innovation in detecting, preventing and remediating forced labour in our supply chain. We were described by the jury as “exemplary” for the transparency used to address and resolve supply chain issues, and praised for embedding anti-slavery into our overall business practice.
We are proud to receive this recognition for our work, but we recognise there is much more to be done to eliminate forced and bonded labour in the apparel value chain.
