Modern Slavery Policy Statement
Working for a fairer future
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights that takes various forms. These forms include 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. We abhor these practices and are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking. We refuse to trade with any organisation that does not have a comprehensive Modern Slavery Policy and will not supply any products that do not have a provable ethical origin. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business and our supply chain.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending August 2019. To download the policy please press the download button.
