We strive to work to the highest professional standards and comply with all laws, regulations and rules relevant to our business.
At UK level, our leadership team work in conjunction with our procurement functions to help ensure that the aims and provisions of the Act are complied with and to manage any concerns or breaches.
Our recruitment and employment procedures include appropriate pre-employment screening of all staff to determine right to work in the UK.

Sustainable Procurement is an integrated value in our supply chain management. We seek to trade with suppliers who match and complement our ethical standards and organisational values whilst seeking to minimise the environmental impacts arising from the delivery of their goods or services. We are committed to the following:
Supplier responses are taken into consideration when short-listing and we make any concerns known to the supplier. Should suppliers fail to live up to our expectations or be unwilling to make any changes we may cease to engage with them.
We will be looking to introduce specific measures to ensure that our obligations under the Act are passed through our supply chain. These will include:
Relevant e-learning training materials are available to all staff and will be made compulsory for those involved in recruiting and sourcing/managing a supply chain so that they are able to identify risk factors, understand the implications and assist us with implementing the requirements of the Act effectively.
