Anti Slavery Policy
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
I only work with people who choose to work freely. I respect the right to equal opportunity, freedom of association and collective bargaining.
I have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and am committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in my own business or in any of my supply chains.
I am also committed to ensuring there is transparency in my own business and in my approach to tackling modern slavery throughout my supply chains, consistent with my disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
I expect the same high standards from all of my contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of my contracting processes, I include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and I expect and require that my suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
