The company does not tolerate any slavery or human trafficking within its business operations and we expect all those in our supply chain to comply with our values.

Our procurement activities are aligned to our company values and to the laws of the countries in which we operate. We take a risk based approach regarding our supply chain; where possible we build longstanding relationships with our suppliers and make clear our expectations of behaviour and we have systems in place to encourage the reporting of concerns.

In the small number of instances where we assess the risk to be relatively high we carry out checks to ensure compliance with stated policies and procedures.
