At Wildstone, we are committed to upholding ethical and responsible business practices. As part of our commitment to human rights and social responsibility, we have implemented this Modern Slavery Policy to eradicate any form of modern slavery or human trafficking from our operations and supply chains. We believe in promoting transparency, fairness, and dignity for all individuals involved in our business, including employees, suppliers, contractors, and partners.
Modern slavery encompasses various forms of forced labour, human trafficking, debt bondage, child labour, and other exploitative practices. We condemn and prohibit any involvement in such activities, whether directly or indirectly, and will take appropriate actions to prevent, detect, and address any instances of modern slavery within our organization and supply chain.
Wildstone’s Senior Management Committee is responsible for setting the strategy and guiding implementation, which is led by the COO. Wildstone’s Senior Management Committee is responsible for implementing this Policy and overseeing the progress towards achieving its objectives.
It is the responsibility of all employees, suppliers, contractors, and business partners associated with Wildstone to be aware of and adhere to this policy. Our leadership team will take overall accountability for the implementation and enforcement of this policy across the company.
We conduct regular risk assessments to identify potential areas where modern slavery may exist within our operations and supply chains. Additionally, we expect our suppliers and business partners to undertake similar risk assessments and demonstrate their commitment to eliminating modern slavery.
When selecting suppliers and business partners, we prioritise those who share our commitment to eradicating modern slavery. We expect our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to labour practices and human rights. Regular monitoring and auditing of suppliers will be conducted to ensure compliance.
We provide regular training and awareness programs for our employees to educate them about the signs of modern slavery and how to report any concerns they may have. Encouraging an open and transparent reporting culture is essential to the success of this policy.
We maintain effective reporting mechanisms to encourage employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any suspected instances of modern slavery within our operations or supply chain. Reports can be made anonymously through an independent whistle blowing system, and we assure protection for whistle-blowers.
We strictly prohibit any form of retaliation against individuals who report suspected cases of modern slavery in good faith. Any retaliation will be subject to disciplinary action.
We are committed to continually reviewing and improving our policies and procedures to enhance our efforts in combatting modern slavery effectively. Feedback and insights from employees, stakeholders, and experts will be considered for this purpose.
This policy will be made available to all employees, suppliers, and business partners. We will also communicate our commitment to fighting modern slavery through public channels such as our website and annual reports.
Failure to comply with this Modern Slavery Policy may result in disciplinary action, including termination of business relationships with suppliers or employees involved in modern slavery.
At Wildstone, we are committed to conducting our business ethically and responsibly, taking concrete steps to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking. By working together, we can contribute to a world where human rights are respected, and everyone can work and live with dignity and freedom.
