VOLUNTARY SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
Elementary Technology Limited is making a voluntary modern slavery and human trafficking statement relating to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all its forms and make this statement to set out the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or in our supply chains.
We are a provider of Audio-Visual Equipment in the Public and Private sector. We have 29 employees and operate in the United Kingdom.
Our annual turnover is under £36 million. Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.
Our supply chains are mainly made up of the following:
- Audio Visual resellers and distributors
- IT providers and consultants
- Sub-contract installation engineers
POLICIES OR OUR COMMITMENT TO ETHICAL TRADING
Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
DUE DILIGENCE AND RISK ASSESSMENT
To help identify and monitor the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain we request a copy of their modern slavery statement.
We include anti-slavery and human tracking provisions in all our contracts with suppliers.
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we have in place a rigorous supply chain compliance programme. We have in place systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Protect whistle blowers.
We only employ agency workers through reputable employment agencies that adhere to our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy (or equivalent policies).
EFFECTIVENESS IN COMBATING SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been at ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
- 80% of suppliers and sub-contractors vetted for ethical labour practices.
- We have inspected the Modern Slavery Statement of 75% of direct suppliers and sub-contractors in our supply chains in the past year.
- There were no reported breaches in the past year.
- All staff receive training on identifying and addressing the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.
This voluntary slavery and human trafficking statement is made in connection with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, for the financial year ending December 2020.
