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

  • We collaborate with our suppliers in order to improve standards and transparency across our supply chain.
  • Only senior members of staff who have undergone appropriate training for assessing modern slavery risks in the supply chain are authorised to sign contracts and establish commercial relationships in any area where we have identified the potential for risk.

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

We benchmark our indicators against industry best-practice, in order to ensure that we do not put undue pressure on our suppliers that might increase the potential for risk.
