Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility Rates Companies on Modern Slavery Efforts

The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) has scored and ranked seven of America’s top banks on a number of key areas related to human slavery in its annual report, Breaking the Bonds: Modern Day Strategies to Counter Modern Day Slavery.

“The enslavement of approximately 12 million women, 3 million men and 6 million children into forced labor or sexual activity is a chilling reminder of how the power of greed can poison our world. Not surprisingly some corporations are unwitting participants in this troubling practice,” ICCR Chair David Foster writes in the report.

The report is aimed at raising awareness for trafficking and slavery, and argues that companies’ entire supply chains need a comprehensive assessment to determine the potential risk of human rights violations.
