Due diligence process for slavery and human trafficking
The Company is committed to taking appropriate and proportionate steps to mitigate the risk of these occurring within our business and supply chain.
We procure the majority of our directly sourced materials from UK based organisations that are required to comply with UK laws on forced labour, and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk the Company has in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle-blowers.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking, we provide training to our staff.
