Modern Slavery Statement

About

The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 was one of the first legislations of its kind in the world. The result of the introduction of the Act is that all commercial organisations with an annual turnover of over £36 million in the UK must publish a slavery and human trafficking statement. However, the extent to which the introduction of the Act has shaped the modern slavery policies of companies is currently unknown. Knowing whether or not a company has shaped their modern slavery policy in response to the Act, helps us to better understand the normative impact that the Act may have had on company behaviour. 

Methodology

This metric is asking whether the company’s statement identifies any changes to their policy which came about as a direct result of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. Some companies specifically say in their statement that their behaviour has changed as a result of the Act. 

Examples of this type of change include:

  1. Updating the company’s code of conduct and/or supplier code
  2. Developing a new modern slavery company policy 
  3. Changing their risk assessment strategy
  4. Updating their supplier contracts
  5. Developing (or adapting) their training programme
  6. Developing new key performance indicators

In each case, for the answer value to be ‘yes’ the company must say that a change has occurred as a direct result of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.

If the company identifies one or more changes which have occurred as a direct result of the Act, enter the answer value ‘Yes’. 

Where there is no information given about whether the Act has shaped the company’s policy, please enter a ‘No’ value.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement.
