Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy

A global issue we take seriously

Modern slavery and human trafficking are complex problems that unfortunately still exist today. At ITGUYS, we believe in conducting business ethically and with integrity. That includes taking a strong stance against slavery in all its forms.

What is modern slavery?

Modern slavery encompasses situations where people are forced to work against their will. This coercion can take many forms, including threats, violence, deception, or abuse of power. People trapped in modern slavery are often isolated and unable to escape.

While slavery may seem like a relic of the past, estimates suggest millions of people are still affected globally.

Our commitment to ethical sourcing

We have a zero-tolerance policy for modern slavery. We understand the importance of transparency and accountability throughout our supply chain. Here’s how we’re taking action:

  • Building Strong Supplier Relationships: We cultivate long-term partnerships with our suppliers based on shared values. We communicate our expectations for ethical labour practices and responsible sourcing.
  • Comprehensive Code of Conduct: Our Code of Conduct outlines our commitment to human rights and ethical business practices. This code is a foundational document shared with all suppliers and employees.
  • Employee Training: We train employees, especially those involved in procurement and sourcing, to recognise potential signs of modern slavery. This empowers them to ask critical questions and report any concerns.
  • Collaboration for Solutions: We believe in open communication and collaboration with our suppliers. If we discover any issues, we work with them to develop and implement solutions that ensure ethical labour practices.

Join us in making a difference

Combating modern slavery requires a collective effort. We encourage all stakeholders to join us in this vital fight. Here’s how you can contribute:

  • Educate Yourself: Learn more about modern slavery and the signs to watch for. Explore resources provided by organisations like Anti-Slavery International or the International Labour Organisation.
  • Ask Questions: Don’t be afraid to ask the companies you support about their ethical sourcing practices. Your voice matters.
  • Report Concerns: If you suspect modern slavery is occurring in a company’s supply chain, report your concerns directly to the company or through an appropriate whistleblowing mechanism.
  • Spread Awareness: Talk to friends, family, and colleagues about modern slavery. Raise awareness and inspire others to take action.

Together, we can create a supply chain built on respect for human rights and fair labour practices.
