We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. To ensure these efforts, we are already busy implementing the supply chain due diligence act. Although, the likelihood of an incidence of modern slavery in our business or our supply chains is low, our Modern Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. We aim to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
