Business & Human Rights Resource Centre assessed the reporting of the FTSE 100 companies over three reporting cycles. As the largest companies in the UK, the FTSE 100 should provide leadership and help lift standards at an industry level. Our findings show that the Act has failed to deliver the transformational change many hoped for. Three years into the Act, most companies publish generic statements committing to fight modern slavery, without explaining how, and only a handful of leading companies have demonstrated a genuine effort in their reporting to identify vulnerable workers and mitigate modern slavery risks.
Each of our reports provides:
- Recommendations to companies, investors and government;
- Examples of leading practice by FTSE 100 companies;
- Trends in reporting of all companies on the Modern Slavery Archive.
