"In 2019 we engaged with all our markets (wholly owned and joint-ventures) to conduct human rights due diligence, specifically including modern slavery risks. The due diligence covered our governance, supply chain, our customers, investments and our people11. In 2020, after having analysed the output of this exercise, we have put together an action plan for all markets, having identified any relative weaknesses to address or strengths to further enhance. We have already implemented many actions within the plan and will work with business leadership across the group to complete these actions, including strengthening our anti-modern slavery agenda, raising awareness at all levels of the business and embedding our approach to supplier due diligence across all markets. We have also continued to build wider human rights and modern slavery awareness by deploying a comprehensive Business and Human Rights e-learning module with emphasis on modern slavery. This will also be shared with some of our key suppliers undergoing a modern slavery risk assessment."
