4. DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
As part of our efforts to identify and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted procedures to identify any modern slavery risk associated with our suppliers.Our procedures are designed to:
identify and assess potential risk areas in our business and supply chains;
reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains;
monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains; and
protect whistle blowers.
We do not consider ourselves as operating in high risk sectors or locations but the Group will regularly evaluate the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain by undertaking risk assessments in relation to and on-going monitoring of its suppliers, both new and existing. If a potential risk is identified we will undertake appropriate due diligence with our suppliers or proposed suppliers to enable us to assess the situation.We expect all of our suppliers to adhere to our anti-slavery policy and will not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains. For example, if we find evidence of slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains we would immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier.
5. FURTHER STEPS
Following the end of each financial year, we will review our actions to prevent slavery of human trafficking from occurring in our supply chain and identify any further steps we believe we need to take to tackle slavery in relation to our business. We intend to invest in educating our staff and our training will help them rot recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. we want our employees to be able to identify and report any potential breaches of our politicise.
