ILO GBNFL reaches across sectors and geographies to advance the business case for an end to forced labour. The network is aligned with, and contributes to, other relevant international initiatives, in particular Alliance 8.7, the global partnership working to deliver on SDG Target 8.7 and eradicate all forced labour by 2030.
Target 8.7 of the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): “Take immediate and effective measures to eradicate forced labour, end modern slavery and human trafficking and secure the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour, including recruitment and use of child soldiers, and by 2025 end child labour in all its forms.”
Target 8.7 is bold and ambitious and requires an equally bold and ambitious partnership to meet it. The ILO Global Business Network on Forced Labour is built on the recognition that no single actor can solve this challenge alone and that efforts can be accelerated through leveraging expertise across a diverse range of stakeholders.

Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Human Trafficking Organizations
With support from ILO’s Global Business Network on Forced Labour, United Nations Global Compact, the Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking, and the RESPECT Initiative (comprised of the Global Initiative, Babson College's Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, and IOM) partnered to provide a unified resource of information of organizations working with the private sector to eliminate human trafficking, forced labour and child labour.
The Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Human Trafficking Organizations is a resource for companies to navigate emerging partners and resources; for all anti-trafficking organisations; and the general public to improve coordination on the eradication of modern slavery, and a baseline from which existing and newly formed initiatives can move forward.
