Our Company Mission is to help customers maximise the amount of good they do in the world and one of our core Company Values is Compassion. This mission and value intrinsically link to our commitment to Human Rights, to Employee Rights and to our opposition to Slavery and Human Trafficking.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in our business dealings and relationships and are committed to preventing modern slavery in our own business and to helping prevent modern slavery in our supply chain.
We meet this commitment by ensuring all those working for the Group, or on our behalf, in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns and agents (“Group Staff”); and our contractors, external consultants, agencies, third-party representatives, and business partners/suppliers (“Third Parties”) adhere to our anti-slavery policy and avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy. For Third Parties, we carry out due diligence before approval to ensure they fully adhere to our standards and commitments, as per our policy.
We have clear reporting guidelines and expectations for any Group Staff or Third Parties who may believe or suspect a breach has occurred and will fully investigate all reports received.
Any Group Staff or Third Parties who breach our policy may face disciplinary action or termination of our business relationship.
