Modern Slavery Statement

Aesthetic Technology Limited is making a voluntary modern slavery and human trafficking statement relating to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

 

We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all its forms and make this statement to set out the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or in our supply chains. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

 

We are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.

 

Policies

 

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy below reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

We are committed to ethical trading principles and to acquiring goods and services without harm to others.

 

Due diligence and risk assessment

 

We vet suppliers and sub-contractors to ensure that they are committed to ethical labour practices.
We seek to:

 

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistle blowers.

 

We include anti-slavery and human tracking provisions in our contracts with suppliers. We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking.
We will only employ agency workers through reputable employment agencies that adhere to our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy (or equivalent policies).

 

Effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking

 

We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been at ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:

 

  • The percentage of suppliers and sub-contractors vetted for ethical labour practices.
  • The number of inspections of direct suppliers and sub-contractors in our supply chains in the past year.
  • The number of reported breaches in the past year.
  • Percentage of staff receiving training on identifying and addressing the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.

 

Training

 

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff. We also require our business partners to provide training to their staff and suppliers and providers.
