We recognise that forced labour & human trafficking remain a blight on global society. This Anti Slavery Notice sets out the steps we’ve taken to ensure it has no part in our business.
Of course, part of our action includes understanding the risks of modern slavery. And identifying how it can enter into our supply chain and procurement. To combat this risk we have established company policies and controls. So that we can prevent it in the first place & act promptly if any concerns arise.
On this webpage you will find details of our commitment, steps & actions. Or you can use the button below to download & save our Modern Day Slavery Policy Statement.
