Modern slavery, forced labour, human trafficking and exploitation impact workers across all aspects of our global supply chain and represent an unacceptable affront to human rights.

We are committed to playing an active role in tackling these issues and over the years we have continuously developed and improved our approach. Our vertically integrated structure gives us insight into the evolving risk of modern slavery offences in UK, enabling us to trial and share best practice with our suppliers. Collaboration, transparency and shared responsibility are key to engaging our suppliers, competitors and external stakeholders in the fight against modern slavery and remain the guiding principles on which our approach is founded.

Further details on the steps that we have taken to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking within our Group businesses and supply chains can be found in our latest Modern Slavery Statement here.
