Modern Slavery statement

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand is proud to publish its Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for FY21.

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand is proud to publish its Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for FY21.  

Modern slavery involves the exploitation of people through coercion, threats or deception to undermine or deprive them of their freedom. It has no place in the modern world. Yet modern slavery is more widespread than many of us can imagine, occurring in any sector, industry or country, and affecting some 40 million people worldwide.  

This statement is our second since the Australian Modern Slavery Act came into force. It describes the risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain and provides an opportunity to show our commitment to upholding human rights. It also explains the measures we’ve adopted, the policies, systems and processes we use to continually assess our modern slavery risks, and how managers of our day-to-day operations are held accountable. 

More importantly, we hope it creates greater awareness and understanding of human rights issues for our members living in Australia and New Zealand and abroad and the communities in which they work and live.
