Modern slavery

We do not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking within our business and take a risk-based approach to managing our supply chain. 

Through our engagement, we aim to encourage better practices amongst our investee companies to increase transparency and disclosure regarding supply chain management. This should ensure systematic monitoring of human rights in company supply chains.   Our approach to combat slavery and human trafficking can be found here.
