Modern Slavery Statement

About

Establishing effective policies to combat modern slavery is listed as one potential component of a modern slavery statement within the UK Modern Slavery Act and is recommended by the Home Office guidance accompanying it. Clear organisational policies help to set the tone in assessing, preventing and mitigating the risk of, and working to influence and remedy, modern slavery in organisations and their supply chains. It also helps to demonstrate a company’s commitment to tackling modern slavery.

For further information on policies use the Home Office Guidance, pp. 28-30

Methodology

Does the company’s statement detail clear, organisational modern slavery policies that apply to their direct supply chain? These policies must be explicit and go beyond vague statements of intended actions. Often these policies can be found at the beginning of a statement.

Direct supply chains can also be referred to as tier 1 supply chains.

Policies include:

  1. requiring all suppliers and contractors to comply with local and international laws (including the UN Guiding Principles, ILO standards, or International Conventions), and company’s policies,

  2. prohibiting contractors or suppliers from using forced labour, involuntary labour, debt bondage or human trafficking,

  3. prohibiting contractors or suppliers from using child labour,

  4. the ability to terminate contracts based on violation of supplier code, or violation of modern slavery policies,

  5. requiring contracts to include clauses on forced labour in supply chains,

  6. requiring all suppliers and contractors to respect labour rights more generally, such as paying living wages, or allowing freedom of association,

  7. requiring all suppliers and contractors to ensure employees are not charged fees as part of their recruitment,

  8. requiring all suppliers and contractors to provide additional protection for migrant workers, or

  9. requiring suppliers to produce their own statement on modern slavery and forced labour.

Please note this metric refers to organisational policies that are clear and explicitly tackle and prevent modern slavery. It does not measure supplier engagement such as supplier audits, questionnaires, site visits, etc., this is measured by the metric: ‘Continuous engagement with suppliers.’

Please select as many policies as apply. These are policies which are adhered to by “direct” or “Tier 1” suppliers or by “Tier 2” or “beyond Tier 1” or “in-direct” suppliers. If there is not specific mention of where these policies are applied, please assume they are covered by direct suppliers only and record them under this metric.

If no such policy exists, then please select “No”.

If the business indicates it is developing a modern slavery supply chain policy or planning to implement one in the future, please indicate “In Development”.

For each value, please include a comment that copies relevant information from the statement. If the policy that you wish to include is not listed, please add a comment and flag the section for review.
