Anti-Slavery Statement

Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and 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 have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and 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.

 We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers, customers and other business partners. We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.

 All persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business, customers or supply chains of any supplier tier at the earliest possible stage.

 Training on this policy, and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains and customers, forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us, and regular training is provided as necessary. 

 Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery is communicated to all suppliers, contractors, customers and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter.
