Modern slavery statement: We believe that everyone is entitled to basic rights and freedoms, whoever they are and wherever they live. That’s why we’re against all forms of modern slavery, everywhere: human trafficking, slavery, child labour, servitude and forced or compulsory labour. These practices have no place in our operations. And that goes for those companies and people who work with us and on our behalf too, wherever they are in the world. No one should be made to work against their will. No one should be deprived of their identity papers, nor have to pay to work with us. Yet an estimated 40 million people around the world are exploited and forced into work. They often suffer physical, psychological or sexual abuse in the process.We only work with people who choose to work freely. We respect the right to equal opportunity, freedom of association and collective bargaining. The risk of modern slavery within our own operations is low, as all of our people are based in the UK. They are highly skilled and we do most of our recruitment ourselves. But the risks of modern slavery are higher within our supply chains. We use risk factors to determine the modern slavery risk for each of our direct suppliers. These include the type of product or service the supplier is providing, the country they’re providing it in, and the workers’ skill levels.
