will be introducing additional onboarding checks, together with annual supplier audits to mitigate the existing and potential risks in this area.
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics, honesty, openness and accountability. Our Whistleblowing policy is communicated and known across the organisation.
Our employment practises underpin our commitment to the highest standards of ethics, honesty,
openness and accountability. Our Modern Slavery Policy and Statement is shared as part of induction
materials, and it is made clear that all employees have a responsibility to be aware of and report any
suspicion of exploitation or slavery. The Whistleblowing policy is designed to ensure that whatever the situation, a suitable reporting mechanism exists, without fear of reprisal.
Suppliers found to be in breach of the Act may have any contracts summarily terminated and risk
being removed from our list of approved suppliers. Compliance to the Act is a prerequisite under our
standard terms and conditions of purchase.
