About The Freedom Seal
The Freedom Seal is a visual marker of “freedom” from human trafficking, developed in conjunction with world thought leaders, supply chain experts and through collaboration with approximately 30 major companies across Europe and North America, representing a market cap of one trillion dollars.
There are business repercussions to using human slave labor. A global survey conducted by Walk Free Foundation found that 66 percent of consumers in both the UK and the US would stop buying a product if they learned that its production used modern slavery.
There are also economic benefits of taking a stance against human trafficking. Nearly half of respondents in Brazil and the US, and more than half of respondents in India and the UK, were willing to pay up to 10 percent more for slavery-free products including food, tea and coffee, clothing and electronics.
A company that displays the Freedom Seal informs its consumers they are actively battling human trafficking. The Freedom Seal works in three key ways: 1. Use of the seal raises public awareness and forces people to be more aware about the social implications of their spending 2. The seal helps consumers identify companies who support organizations that care for human trafficking survivors. 3. The application process for the Freedom Seal helps businesses implement specific policies and procedures aimed at preventing forced labor.The Freedom Seal Process
