The Modern Slavery Act 2015 places an obligation on UK businesses with a turnover of over £36 million to produce a modern slavery statement. Although we do not fall within this requirement we seek to adopt best practice and have therefore sought to undertake appropriate steps to combat slavery and human trafficking.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to help eradicate slavery and human trafficking.
Brexit will take place after the 25th of May 2018, therefore UK businesses must comply with the GDPR. Even after Brexit, UK businesses still need to comply with the GDPR if they target the EU market or EU residents with their goods and services.
We adopt a stringent procurement process. It is ultimately our suppliers’ duty to respect the applicable laws and ethics on human rights. However, suppliers are reviewed to ensure they provide safe working conditions and to ensure they adopt adequate policies which meet or exceed our purchasing requirements.At the same time we seek to ensure that goods and services are sourced on a fair basis.
Our policy offers further assistance in all areas of corporate social responsibility including combating modern slavery, as it enables employees to bring issues such as slavery and human trafficking to the attention of our board of directors.
We will always work to the highest professional standards and expects to continue our efforts to meet these standards in all areas of corporate social responsibility.
