Policies

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

Whistleblowing policy

Staff code of conduct

Procurement policy

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:

- Checking certain suppliers with external third parties for any slavery or human trafficking risks.

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. Provide protection for whistleblowers.

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. Creating an annual risk profile for key suppliers.

- Reviewing on a regular basis all aspects of the supply chain based on supply chain mapping.

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because Our entire supply chain is based in the UK, US, and Western Europe and in low-risk industries. We use only extremely reputable and diligent suppliers.

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

The Company uses Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure its effectiveness and ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its business and supply chains. These KPIs are as follows:

We will contact suppliers to enquire about their modern slavery practices every 12 months.
