Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy – Davis Green Limited
Modern slavery is a violation of fundamental human rights and a crime. Modern slavery deprives a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business, or in any of our supply chains.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our business relationships and as part of this process, we have undertaken a review of our supply chain to identify and assess potential risk areas.
We expect high standards from all of our subcontractors, suppliers and other business partners. This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.
This policy does not form part of any employee's contract of employment.
This Policy may be amended at any time.
Responsibility for the Policy
The Managing Director has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations.
Compliance with the Policy
You must ensure that you read, understand and comply with this policy.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control. You are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
Although you should report any concerns regarding modern slavery and/or human trafficking in any parts of our business or supply chains, you are also encouraged to discuss a specific matter with our Managing Director.
If you are in any doubt about whether a particular act or working conditions in any of our business relationships may contravene any aspect of this policy, please speak with the Managing Director immediately.
We encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their knowledge, or suspicion, that modern slavery is taking place in any part of our business or in any of our supply chains.
Communication and Awareness of this Policy
Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery is communicated to all significant suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter. We always have and will continue to challenge attitudes that cause undesirable conduct.
Breaches of this Policy
Any employee who breaches this policy could face disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct. We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy.
