The Modern Slavery Act is an important piece of legislation to protect vulnerable workers, respecting their human rights, driving transparency throughout the supply chain and ensuring the supply chain is slavery and trafficking free. Ony is fully committed to striving to ensure there is no modern slavery and human trafficking in any part of its businesses or in its supply chains. This statement sets out the steps we are taking and intend to take in the future to strive to ensure an absence of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains.
Our Supply Chain
Ony and H5 supply Limited has long-standing relationships with a large number of carefully selected suppliers. We are committed to working with our suppliers to identify issues and develop a plan for them to make improvements. Our suppliers are expected to adhere to our supplier Code of Conduct, which reflects our commitment to striving to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our supply chains.
Our Policy on Slavery and Human Trafficking
As responsible retailers and wholesalers we are committed to continous improvement of our processes. We also strive to ensure modern slavery does not exist within our businesses and supply chains for product and services.
Due Diligence Processes
Our due diligence processes are designed to demonstrate our commitment to striving to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain. We expect and have obtained confirmation that suppliers of each of our products, and the suppliers of services to our business, adhere to our supplier requirement. We have also taken steps to identify potential risk areas and closely monitor those areas. Our code of conduct aims to uphold internationally agreed standards of labour, in particular those set by the Ethical Trade Initiative (ETI).
We expect our suppliers to respect the rights and wellbeing of their workforce, protect the natural environment and promote high standards of welfare. We require from our suppliers to ensure for their employees: freedom to choose employment, freedom of association and collective bargaining, safe and hygienic working conditions, no child labour, payment of a living wage, no excessive hours, no discrimination, regular employment and no harsh or inhumane treatment.
