Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of essential human rights. It can take various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced/compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

As part of our commitment we will carry out the following;

  • Publish a statement of our stance to slavery and human trafficking on our website(s)
  • Implement a training programme within the organisation focused on our procurement teams to raise awareness when dealing with our supply chain
  • Gain a better understanding of how our supply chain are ensuring they are free from slavery and trafficking by conducting a survey of suppliers
  • Ensure the Company’s Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking policy is communicated to our workforce and supply chain.

This policy will be reviewed on an annual basis and has been prepared in response to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
