Our due diligence procedures aim to:
- Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains
- Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains and provide protection for whistleblowers.
Risk assessment and management
Employees and contractors are engaged in accordance with local laws and regulations and fibranode has zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking.
fibranodes’ business and supply chain is assessed as having no or negligible risk of slavery and human trafficking. We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because the majority of our supply chain is based in Europe and in low-risk industries. Accordingly, it is not considered necessary to take any further steps by way of elimination or risk management.
Key performance indicators to measure effectiveness of steps being taken.
It continues to be a priority for fibranode to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain.
