Risk assessment

We conduct a risk assessment in respect of our suppliers to identify, control and effectively manage any actual or potential risks of slavery within our business operations and supply chain. Each of the following are criteria that are considered:  

  • Our strategic partners and services they provide
  • Ours and our suppliers’ geographical locations
  • Operations outside of the UK/EU regulatory frameworks
  • Suppliers with temporary or low skilled workforce 
  • Employee screening for identity, criminal record and taking references

In concluding our risk based assessment and in reviewing the risk framework, including supply chain due diligence, we have concluded that the risk of slavery or human trafficking in our business or supply chain remains extremely low.
