Our commitment to tackling modern slavery
Running our business in line with our values is incredibly important to us, it is a priority for our Group to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain. We take seriously any allegation of human rights abuse in all its forms and will not tolerate human rights’ abuse against individuals within our Group or our supply chain.
In 2019 we introduced our Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy which forms part of our Group Code of Conduct.
A key part of our Code makes it clear that we will not accept any form of slavery, servitude, forced labour or human trafficking, in our own business or in our wider supply chain, in the UK or overseas.
Despite the difficulties cause by the pandemic over the last 12 months we have continued to work with our partners to develop our programme in this area, to understand the complex issues around modern slavery and to ensure that all those working within our Group and our supply chain are treated with respect.
