KPMG Modern Slavery Benchmark

Enhance your modern slavery response with guidance from leading practice

Benchmark and assess your modern slavery risk management

Australia’s Modern Slavery legislation requires entities to make a public statement on how they identify and manage modern slavery risks in their operations and supply chain. Boards are responsible for the statements, which will be published on a central government register.

The KPMG Modern Slavery Benchmark guides you through a self-assessment of the maturity of your entity’s modern slavery risk management for your operations and supply chain. We equip you with practical recommendations to take effective action. You will gain industry insights and understand your gaps against leading practice.

With increasing regulations, expectations and risks in your operations and supply chain, now is the time to benchmark your modern slavery response and track your progress.
