This policy applies to employees, workers and contractors.
Slavery and Human Trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain.
Ecoffins is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and taking reasonable steps to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any business or organisation that has any business relationship with our company.
Ecoffins has zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have systems in place to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle-blowers.
Our supply chain providers are from all around the world, and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes.
The management team at Ecoffins is responsible for compliance within their respective departments and in their supplier relationships. These staff have been trained accordingly.
Our company induction explains our policies, procedures, and expectations.
