IASC History & Mission Statement

IASC History

The International Anti-Slavery Commission was initially “The Green Barcode Program” – a submission to the United Nations to have green-coloured barcodes on products to show they are “slave-free”.  However, the IASC quickly developed it’s mission into a full global free education program.

Mission Statement

Prevention through education.

  1. The Green Barcode Program
    Bring together the world’s leading experts on production and purchasing to develop the green barcode program around the world so shoppers can instantly know if the product they are buying is slave-free.

  2. Slave-free shopping guides
    Our mission is to be the go-to resource for slave-free shopping guides.

  3. Service slaves & human trafficking
    Human traffickers and slave owners mostly run on cash.  The more we can educate people about a “cashless society”, the more we create auditable financial trails.

  4. School bullying programs
    The easiest prey for slave owners and sex trafficers is the teenage runaway.  Bullying has been shown to lead to teenage runaways and homelessness, the easiest prey of all for slave owners and sex traffickers.  Our mission is to provide a forum of education and promoting of anti-bullying programs for all ages of children around the world.

  5. Funding
    The IASC is funded through private donations, inidividual and corporate membership, our annual awards night/auction, and registration of green barcodes on slave-free products.
