Modern Slavery StatementOpars is committed to eradicating modern slavery in all its forms. We acknowledge that modern slavery is a grave infringement of human rights and a global issue that affects millions of people worldwide.
Our dedication to preventing modern slavery is reflected in our policies, procedures, and practices. We have a zero-tolerance policy towards any form of modern slavery, which includes forced labour, human trafficking, and child labour.
Our efforts to prevent modern slavery include:
- Conducting due diligence: We conduct comprehensive risk assessments to identify potential risks of modern slavery within our supply chain. We evaluate suppliers based on their compliance with our ethical standards and continually monitor their performance.
- Contractual obligations: We have included contractual obligations in our agreements with suppliers, which prohibit the use of forced labour, human trafficking, or child labour.
- Education and training: We provide training to our employees and suppliers on the risks of modern slavery and how to identify and report any potential incidents of modern slavery.
- Monitoring and reporting: We have established a whistleblowing system that encourages employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any incidents of modern slavery.
We are committed to taking appropriate action to address any incidents of modern slavery that may occur within our supply chain. If any such incidents are reported, we will investigate them thoroughly and take immediate corrective action.
We are also committed to promoting transparency in our efforts to combat modern slavery. This statement will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary to reflect our ongoing efforts to prevent and address modern slavery within our supply chain.
As a UK-based business, we comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and we expect all of our suppliers to do the same.
