We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner.
These include the following:
Supplier code of conduct - We operate this policy to ensure our suppliers operate in full compliance with the laws,
rules and regulations of the countries in which they operate, and to seek similar commitments across their own supply
Staff code of conduct - We are committed to the fair treatment of all staff. Our staff code of conduct reflects our
core values and expected behaviours. The code of conduct makes it clear that we have a zero-tolerance approach to
modern slavery.
We make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same standards.

Due Diligence
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we
have adopted the following due diligence procedures:
Internal supplier audits.
Our due diligence procedures aim to:
Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains.
Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains
Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.

Risk and compliance
The Company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in
its UK supply chain through:

  • Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because The majority of our supply chain is based in the UK and in low-risk industries.

We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our policies and procedures by any of our suppliers, we will seek to terminate our relationship with that supplier immediately.


We cannot say with any certainty how effective the steps we are taking have been in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business and supply chains. As part of our work for the next financial year, we will be considering how best to monitor the effectiveness of the actions taken. The statement was approved by the board of directors.
