Modern Slavery Readiness Assessment & Reporting Preparation

Ndevr Human Rights assisted Intrepid Travel to address their compliance and obligations for the Modern Slavery Act and manage and mitigate risk in their supply chain

Intrepid Travel is the largest small group adventure travel company in the world. Responsible business is at the heart of what Intrepid does and following in their commitment to environmental and human rights issues, intrepid engaged Ndevr Human Rights to develop its Human Rights Response framework aligned to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth). 

Intrepid facilitates over 1000 end-to-end adventure travel tours around the world, making for a broad operational footprint with a diverse array of vendors. To help Intrepid manage these complexities and contribute to counter-slavery efforts in the communities in which they are embedded, Ndevr Human Rights first undertook a comprehensive Readiness Assessment of Intrepid’s existing policies, structures and practices. From there, we implemented a supply chain risk assessment on indicative vendors. We then incorporated our findings into detailed Implementation Roadmap to guide Intrepid’s global counter-slavery response, reflecting their commitment to use business as a force for good.

As a result of this engagement, Intrepid understands their current-state of counter-slavery readiness, their primary risk vectors, and has a detailed roadmap to build towards a modern slavery Statement and compliance with Australia’s Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth).

“Ndevr has been a trusted partner to Intrepid since 2018. This partnership has recently expanded beyond environmental advisory to include human rights support, particularly around countering modern slavery risks,” says James Thornton, Intrepid Travel CEO. “As a fellow B Corp, we share the same values and approach and the team has helped us achieve Climate Active Carbon Neutral Certification, become the first global tour operator with verified science-based emissions targets, and strengthened our policies, processes and operations as we prepare to report under the Australian Modern Slavery Act.”
