The energy industry can play a massive role in combating human trafficking.

As the energy industry is intertwined with most aspects of the global economy, vigilance against human trafficking is critical. From extraction and construction projects where workers are relocated temporarily for project-specific work, to complex supply chains that must be closely managed and monitored, to intersections with trucking and logistics, energy industry employees may encounter human trafficking.

Furthering their sustainability goals, anti-trafficking initiatives demonstrate an energy company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility. On a local level, as energy companies adhere to strong safety standards and invest in the well-being of the communities in which they operate, efforts to eradicate human trafficking align with the industry’s core values.

Establish an internal anti-human trafficking policy.

Companies should implement a policy to ensure they are not complicit in any practice that may constitute human trafficking or modern-day slavery. A robust policy also serves an important preventative measure because it addresses the demand for labor exploitation and commercial sex which feeds this crime.

TAT provides guidance to energy companies on ways they can encourage or require their carriers to train using TAT’s free trucking industry resources, including through sample RFP questions, email templates and other resource tools.

TAT in Action

When an 18-wheeler rolled over the scale at a northern Colorado Port of Entry, TAT-trained Officer Jeanay Angel noticed that the passenger in the truck looked significantly younger than the driver. She became suspicious and asked the girl several times if she was okay, felt safe and wanted help. The girl declined to give a clear answer.

After they left, Officer Angel ran their IDs through a national database and found an outstanding arrest warrant from Oklahoma on the driver for child sexual abuse. She contacted the first port they would be in contact with next in Wyoming, who were able to stop the truck and arrest the driver. Using a victim-centered approach, the Wyoming State Patrol paid for a hotel room for the girl for the night and connected her with TAT to learn more about warning signs of grooming and trafficking.
