Our policies on anti-slavery and human trafficking:
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business. We strive to act ethically and with integrity in all of our business dealings and relationships to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business.
We will treat any breach of our Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy very seriously. For employees this will result in disciplinary action and potential dismissal; for suppliers and other third parties it may result in the cessation of all relationships.
Supplier adherence to our values and ethics:
Suppliers to EQL will be engaged to provide information and assurance that they provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour.
Training & Communication:
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain, we ensure relevant team members receive appropriate training and are aware of their responsibilities.
Our continued commitment:
We recognise the importance of maintaining constant vigilance to identify and address any issues associated with slavery and human trafficking in EQL and throughout our supply chains. We are committed to continuing to enhance our capacity to identify, prevent and mitigate any actual or potential risks in these areas. This includes communications to staff and the ability to report concerns through our Whistleblowing processes.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30th June 2019.
