Modern Slavery Act 2015
This statement is made on behalf of the ITRS group of companies including ITRS Group Limited, ITRS America, Inc., ITRS Asia Limited, ITRS Scotland Limited and OP5 AB pursuant to Section 54, part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps that ITRS has taken and continues to take, in order to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
ITRS is not required to make this statement but we always work to the highest professional standards applicable to our sector. We expect those same high standards from those parties with whom we engage and we are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain. This commitment is detailed in our Anti-Slavery Policy. We are working to embed a robust risk management framework throughout our operations, analysing the risk of inadvertently working with suppliers who do not share our values and our commitment to ending modern slavery and human trafficking.
Supplier due diligence
Our suppliers are partners in our business success; they are expected to comply with all local laws and regulations. We take a risk-based approach to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any of our operations or in our supply chain. We are amending our supplier questionnaires so that all suppliers are asked to explain their own steps taken to avoid it.
We are in the process of developing a training program to ensure that all employees who have responsibility for procurement within our firm receive appropriate training to identify issues related to slavery and human trafficking and to review standard terms with suppliers as a means of ensuring disclosure and compliance.
