There are 40 million people trapped in modern slavery.
10 million of them are children.
We can fix this. Together.
IMSACC (International Modern Slavery Action Coordination Coalition) takes ownership of slavery situations that are outside the operational control of modern slavery reporting entities, plus those discovered by SlaveCheck's unique 'top-down/bottom-up' supply chain data collection system.
IMSACC then coordinates the design, funding, implementation and monitoring of in-field solutions, largely executing through existing NGOs on the ground.
Increasingly complex, integrated global supply chains have made it almost impossible to tell whether products that are stamped “Made in XYZ” have at some stage used slaves or underage children in other countries as part of the production process.
Slavery is illegal in every country yet ‘modern slavery’ has become a thriving, pervasive, highly-profitable i industry with over 40 million people currently trapped, and being dishonoured, degraded and dehumanised in the various forms of slavery.
The Global Slavery Index has identified about a dozen categories of goods ‘at-risk’ of using slaves: Cotton, Apparel and clothing accessories, Cattle, Sugarcane, Gold, Carpets, Coal, Fish, Rice, Timber, Cocoa, Diamonds, Laptops, computers and mobile phones.
It is highly likely that most of us are unwittingly sustaining modern slavery merely by consuming any of these at-risk goods, and in doing so, are effectively dealing with the proceeds of crime.
IMSACC (International Modern Slavery Action Coordination Coalition) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation comprised of a board and a range of executive committees that coordinate the design, funding, implementation and monitoring of in-field modern slavery solutions, largely executing through existing NGOs on the ground.
IMSACC runs independently to SlaveCheck and has access to and full use of SlaveCheck’s technology platforms.
Corporates can engage IMSACC to assist them with addressing slavery situations that are under their direct operational control. For slavery situations outside their direct operational control, corporates can upload these to SlaveCheck's global slavery register. From there corporates can track online IMSACC's progress with each slavery situation and take action if / when requested by IMSACC.
Solution funding will be sourced from governments, philanthropic organisations and contract revenue from SlaveCheck and its customers to implement in-country programs and individual solutions through relevant and competent NGOs.
IMSACC Executive Committees
The IMSACC board determines the executive committees it requires to advise, develop and monitor strategy for each key functional area of the slavery elimination process. Special committees may also be formed for particular complex or sensitive issues, on a project or specific purpose basis, or for ongoing operational purposes.
Each committee is led by an Executive Director and chaired by an IMSACC board member with a clear purpose, outlined in the IMSACC charter.
The IMSACC board retains collective responsibility for governance and decision making, relying upon data and recommendations from the executive committees.
