From a contracting perspective, the contractual terms and conditions that exist with our current suppliers, and that are imposed on new supplies, include clauses that require compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We comply with all applicable employment legislation relating to employee terms and conditions, including pay, and we make sure that all direct employees have the appropriate rights to work.
Our staff are encourage to highlight concerns regarding modern slavery that they may have, and have developed training modules to provide guidance for new employees. We continue to support and assess employee development during the 2020 financial year.
Risk and compliance
AEG will regularly evaluate the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain by maintaining open dialogue with all suppliers.
Further actions and sign-off
Following the review of our actions this financial year to prevent slavery or human trafficking from occurring in our business or supply chains, we intend to continue to maintain robust standards to tackle slavery and human trafficking. Currently, however, we do not consider that we operate in a high risk sector.
