(New York, 27 March, 2009) - Although business activity can both perpetuate human
trafficking and contribute to its eradication, most companies are unaware of the linkages.
This is one of the conclusions of the
Private Sector Survey on Human Trafficking, conducted jointly by the UN Global Compact,
UN.GIFT, and the International Labour Organization (ILO). All three organizations have issued a
note providing background information on human trafficking, the impact of business activity, as
well as a summary of the survey results.
