Anti-slavery statement

Our commitment

At Farrelly Mitchell, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct, integrity, and respect for human rights. As part of this commitment, and in according with section 54 of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act, we staunchly oppose all forms of slavery, human trafficking, and forced labour in any aspect of our operations and supply chain.

We recognise that modern slavery is a grave violation of fundamental human rights and a crime that deprives individuals of their dignity, freedom, and autonomy. As such, we are dedicated to taking proactive measures to identify, prevent, and mitigate any risks of slavery or human trafficking within our business activities and supply chains.

Our principles

Our Anti-Slavery Policy encompasses the following key principles:

Zero tolerance: We maintain a zero-tolerance approach towards slavery, human trafficking, and forced labor in all our operations and supply chains. We do not tolerate any form of exploitation or coercion of individuals for labor or services.

Compliance with laws and regulations: We adhere to all relevant laws and regulations pertaining to anti-slavery and human trafficking in the jurisdictions where we operate. Additionally, we strive to meet or exceed international standards and guidelines on human rights and labor practices.

Due diligence: We conduct thorough due diligence assessments to identify and evaluate potential risks of slavery or human trafficking within our supply chain. This includes assessing the practices of our suppliers, contractors, and business partners to ensure they align with our values and ethical standards.

Transparency and accountability: We are committed to transparency and accountability in our efforts to combat slavery and human trafficking. We regularly communicate our anti-slavery commitments and initiatives to our stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers, and investors. We also hold ourselves accountable for any breaches of our Anti-Slavery Policy and take appropriate corrective actions.

Training and awareness: We provide training and awareness programs to educate our employees and key stakeholders about the risks of modern slavery and their role in preventing it. This includes training on identifying indicators of slavery and human trafficking, reporting mechanisms, and ethical sourcing practices.

Ongoing assessments

For the benefit of this statement, we recognise that these measures must be subject to ongoing changes and improvements as required, and we are committed to continuous review and enhancement of our anti-slavery policy in line with best practices and emerging information.

By adopting this anti-slavery policy, we reaffirm our commitment to respect and uphold the inherent dignity and rights of all individuals. We believe that by working collaboratively with our stakeholders, we can contribute to a world free from modern slavery and create a more just and equitable society for all.
