Modern Slavery & Human Rights Statement

Modern Slavery 

 

Consistent with our commitment to conducting business with high ethical standards and with integrity, Cirrom has a zero-tolerance approach towards modern slavery both within our own organisation and in our supply chains. 

Modern slavery is crime and an abuse of fundamental human rights. The term encompasses slavery and servitude, forced or compulsory labour, and human trafficking. Human trafficking involves arranging or facilitating the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. We are committed to implementing and enforcing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place in our business or in our supply chains.  

We expect our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same standards. Using a risk-based approach, we may require third parties to warrant against the use of modern slavery in our contracts with them. It is the responsibility of all our employees and those working on our behalf to prevent, detect, and report modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chain. Employees must not engage in any activity that may lead to a breach of this policy or fail to report such activity. 

Should any of our employees have a suspicion or concern with regard to modern slavery at any time they must report that suspicion or concern as soon as possible. Employees can report such suspicions or concerns to Robin Stephens at robin.stephens@cirrom.com or alternatively, may do so confidentially and/or anonymously by following the steps set out in our whistle-blower policy.
