As part of ITP’s Goal on Human Rights and ITP Principles on Forced Labour, hotel company members of ITP are committed to driving positive change on respect for human rights as well as fostering safe and inclusive working environments.

ITP created a comprehensive training module following Hilton’s generous decision to share their training on modern slavery to support the broader industry to raise awareness and tackle human rights risks of modern slavery in the operations and supply chain of hotels worldwide. The training module is available for any hotel company regardless of its size and location on ITP’s training platform.

While the industry has robust training and tools to manage risks of modern slavery for sexual exploitation, this will be the first publicly available online training module made by and for the hotel industry focusing on risks in the labour supply chain. ITP hopes that this new resource will be widely used to scale up efforts across the industry in addressing modern slavery worldwide.
