Achieving ethical supply chains will require mobilizing the full ecosystem of the global design and construction industry, harnessing the power of innovators and leaders to not only test and model solutions, but to collaborate and share information, integrating slave-free criteria at intervention points within the ecosystem.
Such intervention points include contracts, specifications, procurement decisions, procurement software, documentation, and auditing of construction materials. The steps to confront slavery in the built environment should include how we incentivize the industry to collect data and develop industry-wide standards and best practices, including company-wide education on ethical procurement policies, and closing legal and policy loopholes that perpetuate the illegal use of forced labor.
Your purchase of our ethically-manufactured Design for Freedom face mask, released in partnership with Herman Miller and Design Within Reach, will help to advance our movement to eliminate forced labor in the built environment.
