Investors call for more UK companies to prevent modern slavery

The Find It, Fix It, Prevent It initiative launched by CCLA Investment Management at the end of 2019, has published its annual report, with demand from more investors to become involved in corporate engagement programmes. This year, Find It, Fix It, Prevent It will see engagement with companies broaden from the hospitality sector to include the construction and materials sector with plans to commence engagement with targeted companies from the third quarter.

The report also congratulates InterContinental Hotels Group that - independently of the Find It, Fix It, Prevent It initiative - searched for, found and is working to address instances of forced labour issues in its operations in Oman and reported on this in their Modern Slavery Statement.

Investor engagement group for the initiative includes CCLA, Aberdeen Standard Investments, Aviva Investors, BMO, The Church Commissioners for England, The Church of England Pensions Board, The Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church, The Church Investors Group, EdenTree, EOS at Federated Hermes, Fidelity International, M&G, Rathbone Brothers and Schroders.
