MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING POLICY STATEMENT
Our commitment to human rights, including our position on forced labour, involuntary labour, child labour, and human trafficking, is outlined within this statement. We are committed to protecting and preserving the rights of our employees, those employed in our supply chain, and those affected by our operations. We believe that all employment should be freely chosen and commit to refrain from any form of forced or involuntary labour. We are opposed to the use of any form of child labour or practices that inhibit the development of children.
We endeavour to be a company that demands everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modem slavery.
- We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains. The deterrence, recognition and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the respor1sibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not participate in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
- We are dedicated to engaging with our suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain.
- We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We evaluate whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of detailed prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties. Using our risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking.
As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes, we will consider whether circumstances permit us to carry out reviews of suppliers for their obedience to our Code of Conduct.
If we find that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached this policy we will guarantee that we take suitable action. This may range from considering the likelihood of breaches being remediated and whether that might represent the best outcome for those individuals impacted by the breach to terminating such relationships.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our business relationships, consistent with our disclosure requirements under the Modem Slavery Act 2015.
