Human Appeal’s commitment to respect in the workplace includes our full support for international efforts to promote ethical principles and practices related to the prevention of exploitation and abuse associated with modern slavery and human trafficking.
Human Appeal also expects commitment to these principles from all organisations with which we do business with and will not support or do business with others knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
Under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act, commercial organisations with a UK presence and a global turnover of £36 million or above are required to publish an annual statement of the steps it has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any of its supply chains or in any part of its business. The definition of slavery in the Act makes it clear that it extends, among other things, to forced or compulsory labour.
Human Appeal has contacted each of our suppliers to ensure that they are informed and are fully aware of the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act and requested that they confirm they understand that Human Appeal will not tolerate slavery anywhere in the entirety of our operations. In addition all members of Human Appeal’s staff have been made aware of Human Appeal’s commitment to the prevention of exploitation and abuse associated with modern slavery and human trafficking.
Statements of compliance from our suppliers are available upon request. In addition it is a condition of all purchase orders to Human Appeal’s suppliers that they comply with Anti-Slavery Legislation, specifically section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act. Human Appeal, our customers and regulatory authorities reserve the right of access to inspect all applicable facilities and records associated with these orders.
Human Appeal’s CEO sets the tone for our ethical culture and holds managers accountable for communication of ethics and compliance expectations. Human Appeal is committed to compliance with the prevention of exploitation and abuse associated with modern slavery and human trafficking.
