This Registry is a fantastic resource for everyone in business, civil society and government wanting to eradicate modern slavery. Millions of activists can now use the Registry to review companies' efforts and we will be highlighting the better-informed company statements as examples of analysis and commitment to be emulated.

Joanna Ewart-James

Executive Director, Freedom United

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre provides the only independent, credible, free, open, and accessible Central Registry for Modern Slavery Statements that is accountable to the public interest. ETI feels it is vital that there is an independent platform that enables key stakeholders to review and analyse Statements to help drive a race to the top.

Cindy Berman

Director, Ethical Trading Initiative

This registry is an important tool for journalists who are monitoring company statements under the Act. It is critical that these statements are accessible in one place so we can identify companies that aren't meeting the mark in eradicating slavery.

Josh Boswell

Investigative Journalist, The Times

The Registry is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in corporate action on slavery and human trafficking. As more statements are published, a tool that enables company responses to be tracked and compared is essential.

Marilyn Croser

Director, CORE Coalition

The Resource Centre’s Registry makes it far less resource intensive to learn from what others are doing and to identify which companies are being proactive. This is one crucial step towards allowing companies, investors and wider stakeholders to work together to innovate business models which allow people to work their way out of poverty.

Erinch Sahan

Head of Private Sector Team, Oxfam

This free, transparent and accessible registry is an invaluable tool for the public, civil society, parliamentarians, the government, investors and others to review and analyse the statements companies are making under the Modern Slavery Act. It is vital in helping us all ensure companies are doing all they can to eliminate the scourge of modern slavery.

Nick Grono

CEO, The Freedom Fund

The Modern Slavery Act needs responsible investors to hold companies to account on their actions to tackle the risks of forced labour, celebrating the leaders and putting pressure on the laggards. The Registry is a fantastic tool for investors, and their advisers, to compare companies' statements, and encourage the race to the top.

Jon Hoare

Former Director of Policy, ShareAction

Transparency is an important tool to drive responsible corporate behaviour and good governance. The Registry is a useful resource to help investors, commentators, the public and companies themselves to understand the progress business is making in upholding vital human rights and consigning slavery to the history books where it belongs.

Jo Swinson

Business Minister 2012-15

The purpose of the Modern Slavery Act is to prevent modern slavery – including that of children – in supply chains by enabling the public, consumers, investors and employees to know what steps that organisations are taking to address the issue. Without the transparent, free-to-access, open source registry that BHRRC provides, this would be incredibly challenging. We fully support this initiative.

Francis West

Former Head of Private Sector Policy & Advocacy, UNICEF UK

The Registry is a critical instrument in monitoring statements relating to modern slavery. It is vital in holding companies to account, and making sure they follow the spirit, as well as the letter, of the law.

Tony Fisher

Chair of the Human Rights Committee, The Law Society

Today, investors are much more aware of the forced labour risks faced by workers and the risk that companies face from poorly managed supply chains where human rights abuses may tarnish a company’s reputation and adversely impact long-term value. The Registry allows investors to integrate and assess the risk of modern slavery in their portfolios. ICCR members appreciate the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre providing this service for investors and other stakeholders.
