Our Supply Chains
We recognise that our supply chains can be complex and diverse, and we are committed to working with our suppliers to ensure that they share our values and commitment to preventing modern slavery. We engage with our suppliers through a range of measures, including supplier assessments, due diligence, and contractual obligations.
We have assessed the risk of modern slavery in our business and supply chains and have identified that the risk of modern slavery is low. However, we remain vigilant and are committed to taking action if we identify any potential risks.
Policies and Procedures
We have a number of policies and procedures in place to prevent modern slavery, including:
Code of Conduct: We have a code of conduct that sets out our expectations of ethical behaviour from all of our employees and suppliers. This code of conduct includes specific provisions related to preventing modern slavery, such as a prohibition on using forced or compulsory labour, and requirements for suppliers to disclose information about their own policies and practices related to modern slavery.
Whistleblowing Policy: We have a whistleblowing policy that encourages employees to raise any concerns about potential modern slavery in our business or supply chains. We take all reports of potential modern slavery seriously and investigate them thoroughly.
Due Diligence: We conduct due diligence on all of our suppliers to ensure that they share our values and commitment to preventing modern slavery. This due diligence includes a review of the supplier’s policies and practices related to modern slavery, as well as on-site audits where appropriate.
Training and Awareness
We provide training and awareness to all of our employees on the risks of modern slavery and how to identify and report any potential instances of modern slavery. This training is provided to all employees as part of their induction process and is reinforced through regular updates and communication.
Monitoring and Evaluation
We monitor our business and supply chains to ensure that we are upholding our commitment to preventing modern slavery. This includes regular assessments of our suppliers and internal audits of our own policies and procedures related to modern slavery.
