Through Grace Farm Foundation, Sharon Prince announced the establishment of Grace Farms Foundation Architecture + Construction Working Group. The new group will work towards awareness of modern-day slavery.
It will be a continuation of Grace Farm Foundation’s ongoing commitment to fighting all forms of modern slavery and gender-based violence.
The working group is made up of architecture and engineering firms, designers, the construction companies as well as the owners. Developers were not left behind together with an industry association.
Apart from those in construction, they also included scholars, artists, activists, and architectural journalists.
The construction industry is one of the largest industrial sectors in the global world. The newly established group will initialize responses and pilot projects. The main task will be the development of tools to show modern-day slavery in the industry. See This Page to learn more.
The group will be exploring ways to eliminate materials that use slaves for labor. Further, the group will have a list of slave-free projects specification and metrics. As an also restraint, the group will provide alternatives to responsible sources of building materials.
Sharon Prince’s effective policy is awareness. She believes many in the industry will take the easy route as they look out for returns on investments. Products and services from modern-day slavery are cheaper.
She is looking forward to the industry, joining forces, and creating new policies to eliminate slavery. The policy will have ethical supply chains of building materials. The supply chains will be keen on the environmental impact of the materials.
Most materials ranging from gravel to rare earth minerals may be the labor of women, men, and children under servitude. The US government, in 2015, implemented the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act. The act prohibits any importation of forced labor produced goods.
