Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we have implemented a compliance working group comprised of representatives of each department of the organisation to ensure accountability and awareness. We are implementing a vendor due diligence and management processes to ensure compliance with our policies and regulations. We plan to implement a process to monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains. We have processes in place to protect whistleblowers.
Supplier adherence to our values and ethics
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We reserve the right to audit our suppliers and contractors to verify their compliance with our policies and standards. Where non-compliance is identified, we work closely with suppliers to implement corrective actions and improve their practices.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we are implementing training and awareness programs to our employees to ensure they understand the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking and can identify and report any concerns. We also encourage our suppliers to provide similar training to their employees.

We started using the following systems to ensure effective implementation of the programme:
- Compliance: Embed the programme within the remittance of the Compliance Working Group (CWG).

We are committed to continuously reviewing and improving our practices to combat modern slavery and human trafficking. We regularly assess the effectiveness of our policies, procedures, and training programs and make necessary adjustments to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
