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

"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...
