Yodel partners with anti-human trafficking charity
02 December 2019
Independent parcel carrier Yodel has been announced as the first logistics company to partner with Slave-Free Alliance, a social enterprise launched by anti-slavery charity, Hope for Justice.
The partnership, which was formally announced today on the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, will see Yodel work to raise awareness of human trafficking and teach colleagues how to identify the issue. This will directly support Slave-Free Alliance’s vision to end modern slavery by preventing exploitation, rescuing victims, restoring lives and reforming society.
A report into the subject found that 77% of companies think there is a likelihood of finding modern slavery in their operations or supply chains. Slave-Free Alliance is a social enterprise that supports businesses in a wide range of sectors to build towards a slave-free supply chain. It will provide specialist services to Yodel that include Gap Analysis, Technical Consultation, Proactive Investigation and Training.
