Requiring investee companies to meet their reporting obligations under modern slavery legislation helps investors not only gain greater visibility of their supply chains, but also pushes for more transparency across multiple sectors.

This metric was developed by Walk Free, WikiRate, and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, to assess the statements produced by 91 asset managers identified as having to report under the UK Modern Slavery Act. For more information, please visit the project page.


Methodology

Does the investor disclose it requires investee companies to meet their reporting obligations under the UK Modern Slavery Act

To meet this metric, the statement must mention the following:

  • Reporting obligations: This refers to producing a modern slavery statement, when the investee is caught under the scope of the Modern Slavery Act.
  • Requires: The investor must disclose that they require, rather than expect, investees to fulfill these reporting obligations.

If the company discloses that it requires investee companies to meet their reporting obligations under the UK Modern Slavery Act, please indicate “Yes”, and provide details.

If no obligation exists or is described in the statement, please select "No".
