The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) requires large employers to be transparent about their efforts to eradicate Slavery and Human Trafficking in their Supply Chain
The Act makes provisions about slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour and about human trafficking, including provision for the protection of victims. In accordance with the Act, this statement articulates our policies and practices around recognising and preventing human trafficking and slavery in the global supply chain.
