2017 Modern Slavery Statement
Globally it’s estimated that at least 21 million people are living in modern slavery today. The 2015 Modern Slavery Act requires 13,000 UK businesses to report annually on the steps they’ve taken to understand and minimise the risk of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains. It’s recognised that supply chains can be hugely complex and modern slavery hard to detect. However over time, by building more transparent supply chains and by working collaboratively, it’s hoped that businesses will play a significant role in reducing modern slavery globally.
Our business is committed to working to prevent slavery and human trafficking. Our 2017 statement explains the steps we’ve taken to identify and mitigate risks of modern slavery within our operations and supply chain during our financial year running from 1st November 2016 to 31st October 2017.
