'LVUK continued to require suppliers to obtain prior approval before subcontracting any part of their supply chain process that concerned the provision of goods or services to us. Approval was subject to acceptance by the subcontractor of the LV Suppliers’ Code of Conduct and all other conditions that may be required.


We continued to refine and implement our approach with some third parties we work with (in particular, landlords) through the customization of the LV Suppliers’ Code of Conduct to uphold and strengthen our values and culture.'


'The LV Ethical Charter states that group companies will inform all of their commercial partners of their ethical principles and expectations and will require suppliers and supply chains to comply with the principles set out in the LV Suppliers’ Code of Conduct which include our values and culture. In particular, the Code specifies compliance with social issues to abide, respect and adhere to LVUK’s moral and ethical values including those related to Human Rights, working conditions, forced labor and environmental issues'


'Our Anti-modern Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to prevent modern slavery, including human trafficking, from taking place in our business or supply chains' (p.2)
