Comments

Page 2, under 'Our supply chain':

"Our Procurement Sourcing Policy requires our suppliers to apply these principles at all times, and to be able to demonstrate that they are doing so.

In addition, we carried out a review in 2017 to establish which of our suppliers had published statements and policies under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and have kept track of this information on our central register of suppliers."

 

And in the last para:

"As part of the Policy, we will require all of our suppliers to update their responses to the supplier appraisal form on an annual basis in order that we can monitor their compliance with our high standards and ensure alignment with our values."

"We are updating our supplier appraisal form to include questions on our suppliers' modern slavery and human trafficking policies....and questions aimed at assuring their compliance with our ethical business standards. As part of the Policy, we will require all of our suppliers to update their responses to the supplier appraisal form on an annual basis in order that we can monitor their compliance with our high standards and ensure alignment with our values."

Human rights due diligence is a key concept in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Due diligence processes should include ‘assessing actual and potential human rights impacts, integrating and acting upon the findings, tracking responses, and communicating how impacts are addressed.’ (See the UN Guiding Principles). Part of due diligence processes is not just assessing initial risk through questionnaires or having in place policies, but monitoring this risk through continuous engagement with suppliers.

For further information on this metric please refer to the Home Office Guidance, pp. 32-33, and the Walk Free Foundation Guidance, pp. 37-39.


Methodology

Does the company manage the risk of modern slavery by continuously engaging with suppliers?

This continuous engagement can include:

  1. conducting audits of suppliers (including high risk suppliers),

  2. providing suppliers with continuous improvement programs,

  3. providing suppliers with correction action plans, or equivalent, and

  4. conducting on site visits of suppliers.

Please select as many examples of continuous engagement as may apply.

In some instances, these mechanisms are conducted by the suppliers or company themselves, or are conducted independently. If continuous engagement is conducted by the company itself or the supplier, please select the value with (self- reporting). If continuous engagement is conducted by a third party, or an external, independent agency, please select (independent) value.

If no such continuous engagement is described, then please select “No”.

If the business indicates it is developing continuous engagement mechanisms, or planning to implement these in the future, please indicate “In Development”.

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

* Note on choosing the Year of your answer
