Leading hoteliers have come together to launch an industry-wide network to combat modern slavery in UK hotels...led by Shiva Foundation...will help representatives from across the industry address risks in their facilities, employment practices and supply chains. The network will work collaboratively to develop and test methods to be shared throughout the hotel and hospitality sector. The founding members are Shiva Hotels, Hilton and Bespoke Hotels. The British Hospitality Association has endorsed the scheme and will support its expansion throughout the hotel sector. The International Tourism Partnership, which works with leading international hotel groups on human rights, is also supporting the scheme to enable it to sync with corporate policies beyond the UK. With 180,000 businesses involved in UK hospitality and tourism, there is significant scope for the network to grow. The Stop Slavery Hotel Industry Network has been formed following a roundtable held by Shiva Foundation and Thomson Reuters Foundation in early November.
