FIGHTING SLAVERY TODAY

Ethical investment

Ethical investment, along with consumer awareness, are two of the most powerful instruments to combat child labor and the recent the revival of slavery.

 

Ethical investment in the context of slavery can be traced back to those businessmen (mainly Quakers) in New England and Pennsylvania and in London and Manchester who refused to invest in joint stock companies which were financing ventures in the slave trade.

 

The following areas of investment pose risks for those wishing to invest ethically:

  • Diamonds

  • Carpets

  • Rugs
