Policy on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business or supply chains. This policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within our supply chains.
We have a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure that all those in our supply chains comply with our values we are putting in place a supply chain compliance programme that will require our suppliers to confirm that they either have or are working towards putting a slavery and human trafficking policy in place and that they require the same from their suppliers.
We will look to provide appropriate training to ensure the employees understand the risks of modern slavery.
