This statement sets out the steps that we have taken so far to mitigate the risk of modern slavery in our business and supply chains and outlines the steps we intend to take in the coming year.

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

We recognise that the prevention of modern slavery is a complex issue that cannot be tackled simply through affirmations or documentation. We will be working to implement a holistic approach to the problem; through education, influence and engagement.
