lthough human rights advocates have begun to raise awareness of the pervasiveness of forced labor in construction projects around the world, the use of raw and composite materials produced by forced labor in the built environment largely continues with impunity.
What is modern slavery? What is an ethical building materials supply chain? Many architects and designers work to ensure a building is sustainably built, but are they also ensuring it is ethically sourced?
This panel will begin to explore how the architecture, construction, and design industries grapple with these questions and how these industries might better use digital models, design-to-construction integration tools, big data, and analytics to ensure ethical building materials supply chains.
