TISCReport - Enabling Business to Help End Modern Slavery

Commitment by

Unseen

In 2016, Unseen UK and its partners committed to creating and developing TISCReport, an online central registry of reports on the steps companies are taking to prevent slavery in their operations and supply chains. Through the UK’s Modern Slavery Act of 2015, companies doing business in the UK with revenues at or above £36 million are required by law to produce this annual report, get board-level sign off, and then publish it on the company website. By joining TISCReport, companies will go a step further, voluntarily publishing their reports in this publicly accessible registry, demonstrating their commitment to combatting modern slavery. TISCReport will offer a tiered fee structure to companies required to report; once profitable, 50% of TISCReport’s revenues will go toward developing and running the UK’s Modern Slavery Helpline and Resource Centre, which Unseen oversees. Any additional funds will underwrite the provision of direct services to survivors of modern slavery. This database will be publicly available, in an effort to inform consumers, academics, governments, and investors, and to enable the public at large to influence corporate practices.
