The November 2016 issue takes an in-depth look at the impact of new modern slavery legislation both in the UK and US, shining a spotlight on both the lackadaisical and the leaders amongst the FTSE 100 firms.

Ethical Corporation, the leading global business intelligence provider, has released details of the stories covered in the November 2016 edition of Ethical Corporation magazine.

This month there is a specialist management briefing that delves into the impact of new modern slavery legislation across UK and US economies.

One feature looks at the sharp increase in modern slavery being found in UK supply chains with the patchy corporate response to new UK legislation; including making luxury beds for John Lewis, and how the heightened reputational risk is making some consider moving more production offshore.

Conversely, features on FTSE 100 companies including Nestle, Ikea and The Body Shop, demonstrate the more proactive measures being taken to tackle slavery beyond the basic auditing.

The November issue also shine a light on the electronics industry, and feature a column from Grant Thornton’s Norman Pickavance arguing for a digital-enabled all-out war on this modern scourge.

Other essential features across the 80-page magazine include:

  • The Rainforest Alliance share analysis and insights from the recent World Cocoa Foundation talks in Cote D’Ivoire.

  • Former Heineken executive Katinka C van Cranenburgh tells a cautionary tale about unwittingly helping Cambodian ‘beer promoters’.
