Fighting Against Forced and Child Labour in Supply Chains

At A&A Testing, a proud member of the B&B Contracting Group, we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in our operations and supply chains. In line with Bill S-211, the Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act, we are excited to announce the release of our first annual report detailing our efforts to prevent and reduce forced and child labour.

Starting January 1, 2024, Canadian companies must disclose their efforts in combating these serious human rights violations. This legislation reflects a growing global concern, with nearly 28 million people, including children, trapped in forced labour situations as of 2021, according to the International Labour Organization.

Our Commitment

Our report will include comprehensive details on:
– Our company’s structure, activities, and supply chains
– Policies and due diligence processes related to forced and child labour
– Risk assessments and management steps taken to address forced and child labour
– Remediation measures for any identified forced or child labour
– Training provided to employees regarding these issues
– Evaluation of our effectiveness in ensuring ethical practices throughout our supply chains

Why This Matters

Forced labour affects every stage of global supply chains, from raw material extraction to product delivery. Addressing this issue is not only a legal requirement but also an ethical imperative. By proactively tackling forced and child labour, A&A Testing aims to:
– Enhance our brand reputation and consumer trust.
– Gain competitive advantages by meeting growing global standards.
– Improve our resilience and ability to respond to market demands.
– Attract investment through strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices.

Looking Forward

We encourage all companies, regardless of size, to start evaluating their supply chains and implementing robust human rights policies. Doing so not only helps eradicate forced and child labour but also positions businesses for future regulatory compliance and market opportunities.
