Modern Slavery Statement

Effective date: 12 March 2020

Introduction

This statement sets out DWB Media Limited’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains.

As part of the telecommunications sector, the organisation recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.

The organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

 

1. Due Diligence & Supply Chain

DWB Media understands that the biggest risk for modern slavery is in our supply chains. We will not work or support with any business knowingly involved in modern slavery or human trafficking.

Many of our suppliers have their own suppliers. Our supply chain is therefore large and complex. We have prioritised our attention on companies that supply high value products or services, or things without which our business could not run.

DWB Media operates a supplier policy and undertakes due diligence on all our suppliers. The due diligence includes a statement that each supplier is required to complete to show that the organisation:

  • complies with the Modern Slavery Act;
  • takes steps to eradicate modern slavery from their business
  • holds their own suppliers to account over modern slavery
  • Ensures their workers receive the minimum wage and undertake robust immigration checks

 

In terms & conditions, we make it a requirement upon our suppliers to adhere to all laws including Modern Slavery Act 2015 & give us the right to end our relationship with suppliers that fail to adhere to it.

 

2. Board Approval

This statement has been approved by the organisation’s board of directors/members, who will review and update it annually.
