Mapeley has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is committed to preventing it from occurring within our business and supply chain. Offences of ‘slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour’ and ‘human trafficking’ remain a hidden blight on society Mapeley is fully committed to ensuring that neither slavery nor human trafficking is taking place in the business or supply chain.
Mapeley has a number of policies, procedures and processes that support us to:
Mapeley’s operational business is solely within the UK and accordingly our geographic risk of slavery and human trafficking is considered low. We see the main sector risks as being security, cleaning and maintenance. Our supply chain has a number of UK-based suppliers in these sectors. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in our business transactions and relationships and we expect our supply chain to share this commitment.
In the last 12 months, we have updated our induction and training processes to ensure staff members are aware of the Modern Slavery Act and its definitions of slavery and human trafficking. We have ensured that our on-boarding procedure and employee guide set out our policies and procedures, including our Whistle-blowing Policy.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Mapeley group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the year commencing 1 January 2020.
