BHRRC Briefing on Modern Slavery Reporting: Case Studies of Leading Practice

Thursday, April 05, 2018

The purpose of this briefing is to provide examples of good practice found in the thousands of compliance statements now available on the Modern Slavery Registry. The briefing also highlights serious gaps where few or no companies are performing well. The idea is that the best practice and gap analysis will encourage informed engagement with companies by investors, civil society, and governments, and facilitate informed reflection within companies regarding their next steps to eliminate modern slavery from their operations and supply chains.

It responds to emerging evidence that large companies, which are required to report on their actions to combat modern slavery, have a limited understanding of their duties and how to conduct human rights risk assessments.
