Exposure to Modern Day Slavery
We have considered the exposure of Locri to modern slavery and human trafficking to be low and relatively limited. However, we will continue to monitor and review and have taken steps to ensure that such practices do not take place in the business or any of the suppliers to the business.
Our supply chains include, IT, Financial, legal, marketing, publishing and printing services. We have reviewed the risk these supply chains can present and consider exposure to modern day slavery to be limited. We do expect suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to exploitation.
Slavery Compliance Officer
Locri has a Slavery Compliance Officer, to whom all concerns regarding modern slavery should be addressed. They will then be compelled to undertake relevant action with regard to Locri’s responsibilities.
