Report: The Business Pledge

A New Roadmap for the Private Sector to address Modern Slavery

The Business Pledge against Modern Slavery is a mechanism to on-board, guide, encourage and track companies that want to step up and fight modern slavery.

Joining the Pledge gives an opportunity to companies who want to address this issue to commit and assess their efforts through a practical self-assessment checklist. With this report, we illustrate what process and learnings have resulted from engaging corporates in this initiative, as well as practical examples of actions undertaken from companies that participated.

Signatory companies have applauded the Pledge for being a supportive, insightful and useful exercise to analyze and expand their modern slavery strategy, pinpoint current efforts and areas of improvements, and receive technical advice.
