Mindful Fashion Modern Slavery Submission

Mindful Fashion has submitted a response to the governments draft legislation to modern slavery and worker exploitation.

To move towards an equitable and regenerative system for clothing and textiles and away from worker exploitation modern slavery must be addressed, due diligence processes need to be in place and effective accountability mechanisms implemented and monitored. This will not only protect workers from exploitation, but help create a level playing field for businesses that choose to operate responsibly with robust due diligence processes for their procurement.

In order for the modern slavery legislation to be effective, we have outlined what we feel are most important.
