New: Enhanced registry of company statements under the UK Modern Slavery Act
31 August 2016 - We have released our enhanced registry of statements made by companies under the UK Modern Slavery Act. The Registry now contains over 760 statements found as the first deadline for companies to report on what they are doing to ensure slavery and trafficking are not taking place in their supply chains and businesses approaches.
The free and open registry allows comparison and benchmarking of companies’ policy and practice to generate a ‘race to the top’ between companies; allow investors to assess company risks; and help consumers and activists to reward leading companies and press laggards for action. Companies will also use it to learn from their peers. A live dashboard enables users to explore statements by sector and country of company headquarters as they are added to the Registry.
