Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Hilton responds to report on company statements published in compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act

Author: Hilton, Published on: 26 October 2017

"Re: Report on company statements published in compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act", 13 October 2017

We appreciate CORE’s focus on modern slavery. This is an important topic that Hilton and others in the travel industry seek to address through policy and practice. At Hilton, we are committed to transparency and integrity, including in our human rights practices and efforts to combat modern slavery. Our commitments and progress are clearly outlined in our Code of Conduct, Human Rights Policy Statement, Responsible Sourcing Policy, and reported on in our MSA Statement (2017) and Corporate Responsibility Report (2017)...

We are concerned that CORE’s analysis of Hilton’s commitments, policies, transparency and progress is incomplete and potentially misleading. Specifically:

  1. Incomplete scope of document review.  [...]

  2. Inaccurate reference to annual report.  [...]

  3. Misleading analysis of the 10-K form. [...]

  4. Overlooked commitment to labour rights. [...]

  5. Overlooked structure and identified key risks in the supply chain.  [...]

We have provided additional supporting information for these points...
