Introducing California SB-657
In 2010, California enacted the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB-657), requiring businesses to disclose the efforts they are making, if any, to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from their supply chains. KnowTheChain was created as a resource to promote greater transparency and dialogue around the issue of slavery in supply chains; improved compliance with SB-657 is an important first step.
