CPA Global is committed to being a responsible business, and we have taken steps to demonstrate our absolute commitment to protect our organisation and people at risk from exposure to slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is a crime resulting in an abhorrent abuse of human rights. It is constituted in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 by the offences of ‘slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour’ and ‘human trafficking’. It takes various forms, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
We are fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities. We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
A number of activities are being undertaken to validate and confirm our existing operational practices including:
- Third Party Due Diligence program designed to detect related violations and red flags of modern slavery through annual questionnaires, continuous monitoring of watch lists and global media, and scheduled desktop investigatory research conducted by legally trained personnel.
- Demonstrating a corporate strategy for an anti-trafficking policy, which will permeate all activities, including supplier codes of conduct, and clear procedures for reporting any suspected incidences.
- Contributing to the prevention of human trafficking through awareness training and engagement of our employees and supply chains.
- Developing and sharing best practice.
