Modern Slavery Policy
At Akerlof, we have a policy of zero tolerance of modern slavery and human trafficking, both in our own operations and across our supply chain. We are committed to implementing systems and controls intended to mitigate the risk of modern slavery within our organisation and our supply chain, and we expect our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. Our approach set out below applies to all people working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels.
We are committed to delivering betters for our people, society and the planet. Our values underpin what we do and help to create a culture of accountability, responsibility, and collaboration on a range of issues, including modern slavery:
We expect anyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following commitments:
- We will work with our supply chain partners to ensure there is a statement or policy outlining the approach to managing the risk of modern slavery.
- We will educate our people, to be able to assess the risk associated with procurement, recruitment, or contracted resource.
- We will take immediate action to respond to any breaches of this policy, including immediate contract termination and notification of the relevant UK authorities.
