Actress Julia Ormond, known for her roles in "Legends of the Fall" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," has been an activist against human trafficking since the 1990s.
In an interview with CNN's Richard Quest, she talks about how the consumer, government and business all play roles in ensuring the supply chain for goods is free of slavery.
"I ... think it's really important that the consumer acknowledges how challenging this is for business," she says. "I think it's important that we understand it as this is like a virus that affects the supply chain. It's not like business is going out there and looking for slavery. The environment that the supply chain is in enables slavery.
"We need business mentality at the table to finding solutions," she adds. "It's not the NGO's role to work out what's the best solution for that industry. They know their supply chain intimately. ... They are sitting on the solution."
