Modern slavery reporting: is there evidence of progress?

Ergon has been tracking how companies are reporting on modern slavery since the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 introduced a requirement to make an annual statement for businesses with turnover of more than £36m. In our latest report we look at a group of 150 companies last analysed in April 2017 to see if their statements have changed, and we have supplemented this with interviews with leading companies to assess if reporting is driving change within businesses. The report can be downloaded here.
