Company Statement

We will not tolerate the use of forced, bonded (including debt bondage) or indentured labour, involuntary prison labour, slavery or the trafficking of persons.

1. Overview and how we define Modern Slavery

1.1 Slavery, child labour and human trafficking are serious crimes and a violation of fundamental human rights. There are various forms of this ‘Modern Slavery’ which deprives victims of their liberty and usually involves financial exploitation.

1.2 At One Creative Environments Ltd we conduct our business fairly, ethically and with respect to fundamental human rights. We are fully committed to the prevention of all forms of slavery, forced labour or servitude, child labour and human-trafficking, both in our business and in our supply chains. We will not tolerate it.

1.6 Failure to comply with this policy may result in disciplinary action, including dismissal, or termination of the contract between you and the Company. It could also involve other legal steps being taken against you including notification to authorities.

4. If you are an Employee or Worker providing services for us

4.1 You must immediately report any suspicions of Modern Slavery or human-trafficking in our business or supply chains to our ASO. Our ASO will investigate and report to our Board of Directors, within a reasonable time, on actions which may be required to be taken.
