CORE is the UK civil society coalition on corporate accountability. We work with our partner organisations to develop and promote shared policy solutions. We aim to advance the protection of human rights and the environment with regard to the global operations of UK companies by promoting a stronger regulatory framework, higher standards of conduct, compliance with the law, and improved access to remedy for those harmed by the activities of UK companies. Recent successes include campaigning for a new law requiring companies to report on how they’re addressing slavery in their supply chains and publishing guidance for companies on reporting, and giving evidence before the Joint Committee on Human Rights. CORE’s work is led by our Executive Director and by a board of experts in the field of corporate accountability. For more information see www.corporate-responsibility.org
