Our supply chain

We maintain supply relationships with suppliers and customers who are recognized within our

industry as being economically, environmentally and socially responsible. We expect our suppliers

and customers to obey national and international standards that require them to treat workers and

employees fairly, to provide a safe working environment and to protect the quality of the working

environment.

We have a zero tolerance policy to human trafficking and slavery. Any allegations of practices running contrary to our values and ethics will be investigated and may result in suppliers or customers being required to take corrective action or in serious cases contracts being terminated with offending suppliers or customers.

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we are in the process of assessing potential risk

areas. In the coming financial year, we will also be dedicating further time and resources to training

employees to increase awareness of the legal requirements and our business policies relating to

slavery and human trafficking.
