A zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain. We accept that we have a responsibility to ensure, through our due diligence processes and so far as is possible, that workers are not being exploited, that they are safe and that relevant employment, health and safety, and human rights laws and standards are being adhered to, including freedom of movement and communication. If we believe that these rules are not being adhered to, we will notify the relevant authorities.

3.0 The procedure to follow
If you believe or suspect that a breach of this policy has occurred, is occurring, or may be about to occur, you must report it. You should raise any concerns that you have as soon as possible, provided that it is safe to do so. If you are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers, or their working conditions constitutes modern slavery, please raise it firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. You will not suffer any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith a suspicion that modern slavery is taking place in any part of the business or our supply chain.
