Last week, SAP Ariba held a human trafficking roundtable event at its SAP Hudson Yards New York City offices. The roundtable focused on the United Nations Global Compact that adopted 17 sustainable development goals for its 2030 agenda two years ago. While most individuals and businesses believe slavery was abolished years ago, there are currently over 40 million forced laborers worldwide. The United Nations Global Compact initiative is assisting in highlighting the problem of modern slavery, forced labor, and noncompliance with human rights. And this initiative lines up quite well with procurement and global supply chains.
