The Federal Parliament Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade is conducting an Inquiry into establishing a Modern Slavery Act in Australia. The Inquiry will examine if legislation, similar to the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015, will strengthen Australia’s response to modern slavery, including provisions on supply chain transparency.
Konica Minolta welcomes the Inquiry and the Sub-Committee’s attention to multi-stakeholder consultation. As of mid-June 2017 there are 185 submissions posted to the Inquiry website. Of these 17 are from large companies, including Konica Minolta, and more than 20 represent the view of industry and business associations and related entities. Based on these submissions, it is evident that Australian businesses support smart regulation on modern slavery, including supply chain transparency.
Konica Minolta will be appearing before the Inquiry hearing on 23 June, 2017.
