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 ensuring that within the company and supply chains there is never any instances of slavery, bonded-labour or forced labour. This commitment is in addition to adhering to relevant policies within our business on issues such as bribery, malpractice, child labour, human trafficking, diversity and training.
Senior management, are responsible for reviewing the management system on a regular basis. Integrity is maintained through regular reviews, as well as internal and external audits, on an annual basis as a minimum with many areas of the business being monitored more closely to insure integrity exists throughout the business and our supply chains.
To highlight our transparency, specifically within our supply chains, internal and external audits will take place to ensure that our high standards are maintained and (in conjuncture with our commitment against correct and proper employment procedures mentioned previously) improved upon. 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 they have taken during the financial year to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere in their supply chains or in any part of their own business overall.
