The Group fully supports aims of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to eradicate human slavery and trafficking. In particular, the Group wishes to ensure that no child labour or servitude of any kind or human trafficking has been involved in the supply and distribution of products or services.
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps the Company has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have, or are in the process of putting in place, systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains
- Protect whistle blowers
The Group will continue to review the position by a process of contract reviews, third party audits and an ongoing monitoring of our partners within the supply chain.
