Register Now for a webinar on "Good Business Practices to Address Human Trafficking"
Co-organized by the UN Global Compact and End Human Trafficking Now, this webinar is the first in a series that will showcase business initiatives that were nominated for the Business Leader’s Award to Fight Human Trafficking in its first two cycles.
This evening Freedom Matters' Nepal partner organisation, Sano Paila, conducted a successful rescue operation in Kathmandu that led to the arrest of two traffickers and spelt freedom for two children.
During the closing ceremony in Davos on 25 January, the Award Jury unanimously selected Tristan Forster, CEO of FSI Worldwide, as the winner of the Business Leader’s Award to Fight Human Trafficking, for being a driving force in establishing and leading a recruitment and manpower company promoting ethical labor supply in a region and sectors of high-risk of human trafficking and bonded labor.
“Forster has consistently shown leadership, demonstrated innovation in measures, implemented the best available practices, and motivated partners in his sector and beyond to join him in this cause,” said Dr. Nafis Sadik, on behalf of the Award Jury.
The Trophy, created by Chopard, was bestowed to Forster by Caroline Scheufele, Chopard’s Artistic Director and Co-President.
“It is an honor to be here with you all tonight and to receive this important award and fabulous Chopard Trophy on behalf of the FSI team,” said Tristan Forster upon receiving the Award. “I would like to emphasize the point that more than any other time in history we have the power to End Human Trafficking Now. In the words of Kevin Bales, If we cannot use our intellectual, political and economic power to end modern day slavery then we have to ask, are we really free?”
