OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are confident that our business is free from practices covered but the 2015 Slavery and Human Trafficking Act.
Our Anti-Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
We encourage staff to report any wrongdoing. This extends to human rights violations like modern slavery.
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Protect whistle blowers.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
We have a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and expect our suppliers and contractors to uphold the same values. We will not conduct business knowingly with anyone engaged in slavery and human trafficking practices or knowingly permit them to be carried out in any part of our business. We are adapting our standard supplier terms and conditions to include applicable anti-slavery provisions and will look to secure similar protection in all relevant supply arrangements.
We have written to our suppliers requesting confirmation from their senior management that they are satisfied that their operations (both in the UK and overseas) have suitable preventative measures in place to prevent modern slavery. We are committed to having an ongoing and open dialogue with our suppliers and working with them to ensure robust preventative measures are in place and will continue to seek confirmations over time.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.
