Vatican to Slave-Proof Supply Chain


Pope-FrancisEliminating Forced Labour

At a recent gathering of The Global Foundation, an Australian based organization that seeks to encourage dialogue about global governance, sustainability and other issues, Cardinal George Pell, Prefect of the Secretariate of the Economy, made the following announcement:

“I am pleased to confirm that the Vatican itself will commit to slavery-proofing its own supply chains and I hope that today’s announcement will serve as encouragement for others to follow suit.”

Pope Francis has sought to shine the spotlight on the scourge of human trafficking and modern-day slavery and has enlisted Christian and Muslim and other faith leaders to do the same.
