OUR POLICIES AND CONTROLS
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. 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.
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES
Our due diligence processes are robust and help us to uncover areas in our supply chains where the risks of modern slavery are greatest. However modern slavery is a criminal activity and the signs can be difficult to
identify. Our purchasing policy is preferably with a UK company or branch and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes. We expect each member of staff to at least, adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain. It is not practical
for us (and every other participant in the chain) to have direct relationship with all links in the chain. We endeavour to vet all suppliers requiring suppliers to sign up to code of conduct, e.g. commitment to paying local minimum/living wage, impose reasonable working hours and conditions, conducting risk assessments, having procedures in place for dealing with any concerns or incidents of modern slavery or human trafficking (including protecting whistleblowers), assigning responsibility for this area to senior figures in each part of the business who report to the board.)
RISK MANAGEMENT AND ASSESSMENT OF EFFECTIVENESS
We have a zero tolerance to modern slavery and human trafficking. To ensure this all those contractors and those in our supply chains are aware made aware of our requirements for compliance with slavery and human trafficking. Staff are issued with the Home Office Modern Slavery guide and are encouraged to report any suspicions that they may have to a member of senior management.
Modern Slavery training is done by using Online portals and the HO Modern Slavery Guide.
