The major global companies are increasingly focusing on the importance of human rights issues in the workplace.

That's according to a senior executive at the Coca Cola Company who's been at the UN to speak about the private sector's role in ending human trafficking and forced labour.

The International labour Organisation (ILO) estimates there are some 21 million people around the world who are victims of forced labour.

Daniel Dickinson asked Ed Potter the Director of Global Workplace Rights at Coca Cola why employers are taking such a strong line on the issue.
