Pg. 1: "AUMA Riester is committed to avoiding and, where necessary, combating all forms of modern slavery and human trafficking both within the company and along the supply chain." and "We regularly carry out risk analysis as part of a risk management process on which we base corresponding measures including those relating to human trafficking and forced labour."

 

Pg. 2: "Our staff should recognise areas that are susceptible to modern slavery and human trafficking." and "We support our customers, suppliers and contractors in their efforts to remain alert to modern slavery and human trafficking and to openly discuss all concerns which arise in relation to unethical conduct. It is only by working together that we can make a meaningful contribution to combating modern slavery."

About

This metric records whether the company produced a statement in accordance with the UK's Modern Slavery Act 2015, it is based on the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre's registry of Modern Slavery Act statements. This metric includes only some of the statements available on the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre's registry - you are encouraged to consult the registry directly for a full list of statements.

Section 54 requires a commercial organisation that has a turnover of over £36 million with operations in the UK to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement each year which sets out the steps it has taken to ensure there is no slavery or trafficking in its supply chains or its own business, or states that it has taken no such steps.

Methodology

This metric is asking whether the company has published a statement in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. If you can find a relevant statement give the company a "Yes" value and add/cite that statement as a source. There are other metrics which ask questions about whether the company's statement complies with the law and whether it contains certain kinds of information. For this metric, any statement that is intended as a "Modern Slavery Act statement" counts for a "Yes" value.

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre maintains a registry of Modern Slavery Act statements.

If the company you are researching does not appear on the registry, try searching the web for terms like "[Company name] modern slavery act statement". These statements should be linked to from a company's homepage but this is not always the case.

These statements can be called things like:

  • Modern Slavery Act statement

  • Slavery and Trafficking statement

If you cannot find a relevant statement by the company, and you believe they are required to produce one, add a new "report" source that explains how you searched, and give the company a value of "No".
