This Registry is a fantastic resource for everyone in business, civil society and government wanting to eradicate modern slavery. Walk Free's 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

Advocacy 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

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.
