BHR attended a discussion on investors' role in and the importance of responsible recruitment in assessing Modern Slavery, organised by the Interfaith Centre for Corporate Responsibility and the Investor Alliance for Human Rights.
Unfair recruitment practices are a key driver of Modern Slavery, as BHR has witnessed in its extense work, notably in the Spanish agriculture sector. As part of BHR’s work to combat Modern Slavery in global supply chains, BHR engages with relevant stakeholders across the world, from unions, workers, NGOs, to companies, authorities and investors, to collaborate and find ways to land corporate policies and legal standards and to find solutions that effectively allow to tackle Modern Slavery. BHR is confident that engagement is fundamental to drive change, and that the investor community has a key role to play in ending Modern Slavery and advancing human rights in general.
