Supply chain investigation for UK-based fund manager

CRA experts were retained by a UK-based fund manager
to conduct a supply chain investigation into the Turkey
manufacturing operations of a high street clothing brand.
The client required a comprehensive investigation to ensure
their supply chain adhered to UN Sustainable Development
Goal 8 – effective measures to eradicate forced labour,
slavery and human trafficking – and the UK Modern Slavery
Act.

The investigation was conducted with the permission
of the parent company but without the prior knowledge of
the manufacturing entity to ensure that conditions offered
to prospective employees were independently evaluated.
Our findings included recommendations relating to both
employment processes and manufacturing operations.
