  1. Our Processes for Managing Risk

In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes with our suppliers: 

  • When engaging with suppliers, we ask for evidence of their processes and policies, including commitments around modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, human rights, and whistle-blowing.

After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain.  However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.   

Additionally, we have taken the following steps to minimise the possibility of any problems: 

  • We reserve the right to conduct spot-checks of the businesses who supply us, in order to investigate any complaints.
  • We require the businesses we work with to publish a modern slavery statement.

Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
