One thing we take very seriously is our legal and moral obligation to the people who work for and with us (both directly and indirectly). This is in addition to our aim to be socially responsible, ensuring a fair working environment and a fair deal for all.
As an example of our cooperation with legislation and our commitment to our principles, purposes and values, we take pride in the steps we take to seek to ensure that within the company and supply chains we have effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against slavery and human trafficking taking place. This commitment is in addition to having in place policies within our business on issues such as bribery, malpractice, child labour, human trafficking, diversity and training.
The Executive Management Team is responsible for reviewing the systems and controls in place to safeguard against slavery and human trafficking on a regular basis. Integrity is maintained through regular reviews, as well as internal and external audits.
In accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we will ensure a statement is prepared and published annually setting out the steps that have been taken during the financial year to seek to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere in the business or supply chains.
