AGL Energy (AGL) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Review of Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 Issues Paper.
Increasing ambition to end modern slavery
As a leading supplier of energy and other essential services to Australian customers, we understand that the nature of our business means that we are exposed to modern slavery risks in our operations and supply chain. We also recognise the growing awareness of modern slavery in the community, and welcome the increasing expectations placed on Australian organisations to understand and address this risk.
We also acknowledge that eradicating modern slavery is a complex task that requires a global response from governments, businesses, and the international community. As a proud Australian organisation with a history of more than 185 years, we are committed to playing our part in Australia’s collective effort towards ending modern slavery.
AGL has considered the questions raised in the Issues Paper and responded based on our experience and dealings with the Modern Slavery Act.
