Modern Slavery statement for FY23

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand is proud to publish its Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for FY23.

Modern slavery - the exploitation of people through coercion, threats or deception to undermine or deprive them of their freedom - is abhorrent. Yet it is estimated to affect as many as 50 million people¹ worldwide and can happen in any country.

This is CA ANZ’s fourth annual statement since Australia’s Modern Slavery Act came into force. It explains the policies, systems and processes we adopt to assess our modern slavery risks, eradicate or minimise those risks with mechanisms that keep all our people vigilant and accountable. This includes:

  • stepping up engagement with suppliers and working with them to mitigate risks streamlining policies, procedures and processes
  • embedding modern slavery risk assessments into our sourcing and contracting
  • providing a secure and anonymous two-way communication platform to allow whistleblowers to raise grievances and complaints

Eradicating modern slavery remains part of CA ANZ’s advocacy to influence relevant standards, legislation and policy decisions in the public interest.
