We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner.

These include the following:

Recruitment and selection policy – We conduct checks on all prospective partners to verify that they are eligible to work in the UK and that they are who they say they are. All roles require a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) background check.

Supplier code of conduct – We operate this policy to ensure our suppliers operate in full compliance with the laws, rules and regulations of the countries in which they operate, and to seek similar commitments across their own supply chain.

We make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same standards.

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 the following due diligence procedures:

Internal supplier audits. External supplier audits.

Our due diligence procedures aim to:

Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains. Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains.

Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.

Risk and compliance

The Company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in its UK supply chain through:

Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because the business operates in a lower risk level environment because the vast majority of our customers’ supply chains are in the UK, EU and other low-risk countries.

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 require that supplier to remedy the non-compliance.


We cannot say with any certainty how effective the steps we are taking have been in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our business and supply chains. As part of our work for the next financial year, we will be considering how best to monitor the effectiveness of the actions taken.

The Company is committed to driving out acts of modern-day slavery and human trafficking within its business and from within its supply chains, including sub- contractors, and partners.

We welcome the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to us.

The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.

The company Directors and senior management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training, etc ) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation or within its supply chains. 

This policy statement will be reviewed annually. 

Disciplinary action will be taken against any partner who breaches this policy.
