Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti‐slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have formulated and are implementing audit procedures applicable to each supplier. This is an ongoing process intended to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistle blowers.

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our
supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff and encourage those in our supply chain
to provide similar training to their staff.

Further Steps

We recognise that modern slavery and human trafficking are evolving issues. Each of our employees involved in procurement is encouraged to monitor news media and professional publications to ensure their knowledge of the issues is current and that our processes therefore remain effective.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement for CPI Group (UK) Ltd and each of its subsidiaries for the financial year ending 31st March 2018.
