Modern slavery statement

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking statement


This statement is intended to fulfil the legal obligation under Section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’) which is to provide a statement on Trustonic’s (‘we’, ‘us’, ‘our’) efforts to combat modern slavery and human trafficking within our organization for each financial year. This is the first statement made by us, in which we aim to give a transparent view of our existing measures as well as the future steps that we intend to take to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking.

Not all companies within our organization are subject to the Act, but they are required to comply with our internal policies which address modern slavery and human trafficking at a global level.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Whistleblowing 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. Within our business, all of our employees, agency workers, and contractors have written employment or engagement contracts to mitigate the risks of forced labor and child labor.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate modern slavery and human trafficking risks we have several processes and systems in place to:

  • Ensure our employees, agency workers and contractors have the right to work in any country within which they reside and work for Trustonic, via pre-employment screening procedures
  • Identify, assess, monitor and mitigate risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains
  • Protect whistleblowers

Supplier adherence to our values

We have zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we have a supply chain compliance program in place:

  • We provide a Code of Conduct document to our suppliers that outlines our expectations of them with regard to preventing Modern Slavery
  • If the supplier has a public Modern Slavery Agreement, we will review this and confirm that their values are in line with ours
  • We conduct a review of any new supplier to ensure that they comply with our stance against Modern Slavery

Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking

Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken this year to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains, we intend to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking:

  • Implement mandatory Modern Slavery training for all employees.

This statement constitutes our modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2022.

It was approved by the board on 5 October 2022.
