Many companies in high-risk sectors aren’t addressing slavery risks in UK Modern Slavery Act statements, report says

The report published by CORE Coalition provides an overview of how companies are including information in their Slavery and Human Trafficking Statements on the risks of modern slavery in their supply chains and operations. It focuses on 50 companies covered by the UK Modern Slavery Act, in sectors associated with a heightened risk of modern slavery.

Following the publication of the report, CORE Coalition received a response from Hilton about their assessment of their statement and their associated docs concerning labour risks. Hilton's letter, as well as CORE Coalition's response to the letter, are included below.
