Policies
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include our procurement policy, whereby we seek to ensure that potential suppliers are committed to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within their own supply chains. Our procurement policy and supporting procedures set out controls and checks undertaken to help verify this.


Due Diligence
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we have adopted a Know Your Supplier policy to assess the risk of slavery as well as corruption in our supply chain and for approving suppliers.

Our due diligence procedures aim to:


Risk and compliance
We have evaluated the nature and extent of our exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our UK supply chain through:

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because the majority of our supply chain is based in the UK and in low-risk industries, such as financial information provision, IT support services and office support services.

We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our policies and procedures by any of our suppliers, we will seek to terminate our relationship with that supplier immediately.


Effectiveness
We use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure our effectiveness and ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business and supply chains. We will carry out a regular audit of our suppliers over a de minimis threshold, which will cover 100% of suppliers each year.
