As a commercial organisation, we are required to publish an annual statement on modern slavery on behalf of ourselves and our subsidiaries where turnover is more than £36 million.
Our statement, published today, sets out the steps we have taken and continue to take to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not happening in any of our supply chains or our businesses.
This requirement to publish an annual statement is set out in the Modern Slavery Act 2015, to which we became signatories in 2019. Signing up to the act ensures that we conduct business to the highest ethical standards, and we continue to align our business practices to the act and any subsequent updates.
Through our policy and approach, we seek to identify and mitigate human rights abuses relating to our employees, suppliers and customers.
