Building and maintaining the highest standards amongst our suppliers
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards amongst our suppliers. We are strongly opposed to the exploitation of workers and we will not tolerate forced labour, or labour which involves physical, verbal or psychological harassment, or intimidation of any kind.
We will not accept human trafficking or the exploitation of children and young people in our business and undertake all possible steps to ensure that these high standards are maintained. We regularly review related policies to ensure that they remain up-to-date and fit-for-purpose.
Our principles are based on International standards, including the International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions and recommendations, which in turn are based on the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Convention on Rights of the Child.
As required by applicable regulation we have set out our Modern Slavery Statement on our website and are conducting an audit of our supply chain. While this audit is not yet fully complete the data and response received so far has been extremely positive and no instances of unacceptable conduct have been reported.
