At Glenlivet Wildlife (hereinafter referred to as “the Company”), we are committed to ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking have no place in our operations or supply chains. We take our responsibility seriously to prevent, detect, and eradicate any form of forced labour or exploitation within our organisation and throughout our supply chains. This Modern Slavery Statement outlines the steps we have taken and continue to take to address these issues effectively.
Organisational Structure and Supply Chains
The Company operates as a wildlife encyclopedia dedicated to wildlife and its habitats. While we do not have a complex supply chain involving multiple tiers, we recognise the importance of ensuring that all individuals and entities we work with uphold the same values of ethical conduct and human rights.
Policies and Due Diligence Processes
The Company has implemented robust policies and procedures to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking, including:
- Code of Conduct: We have developed a comprehensive Code of Conduct that sets out our expectations regarding human rights, fair labour practices, and ethical behaviour. All employees, contractors, and suppliers are expected to comply with this code.
- Supplier Assessment: We conduct due diligence on suppliers to assess their compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including those related to modern slavery and human trafficking. We evaluate the adequacy of their policies and practices and engage in dialogue to encourage continuous improvement.
- Employee Awareness and Training: We provide training to our employees to raise awareness of modern slavery, human trafficking, and the importance of reporting any concerns promptly. We have established channels for confidential reporting and encourage a culture of vigilance and accountability.
- Whistleblowing Procedure: We maintain a confidential and anonymous reporting mechanism that allows employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any suspicions of modern slavery or human trafficking without fear of retaliation. All reports are thoroughly investigated, and appropriate actions are taken.
- Continuous Improvement: We strive for continuous improvement in our approach to addressing modern slavery and human trafficking risks. We regularly review and enhance our policies, procedures, and training programs to align with emerging best practices and legal requirements.
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our modern slavery statement for the financial year ending 2024.
