Anti-Slavery Statement (ILO)
In June 2014, representatives of governments, workers and employers from the tripartite ILO’s 185 member States overwhelmingly supported the adoption of new legally binding standards against forced labour. The Protocol of 2014 to the Forced Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29) and its supplementary Recommendation No 203 proclaim new obligations and provide guidance to secure the effective eradication of forced labour, trafficking and slavery-like practices.
Spentex request all suppliers to support the ILO’s Global Alliance against Forced Labour. Spentex is committed to eradicate all forms of slavery and forced labour of adults and children, from its supply chain.
Today, as we focus on eradicating contemporary forms of slavery, we reaffirm our commitment to end these practices in word and deed once and for all. We owe this to future generations and, most urgently, to the millions of women, men and children who are denied the right to live and ultimately work in freedom, dignity and equality.
Let us all join forces to end slavery in the 21st century.
