Our Ethical Trading Commitment

Working to ensure continuous improvement in our supply chain

Modern Slavery Act

Introduction

This Statement outlines the steps that Mitre has taken to assess, address and mitigate modern slavery risks in its operations and supply chain during the financial year 1st January 2022 to 31st December 2022. Mitre has produced an annual Modern Slavery Statement in accordance with the UK’s Modern Slavery Act since 2015. This year’s statement has been written to include the additional requirements of the Australia Modern Slavery Act 2018.

We welcome Modern Slavery Acts in all countries and the requirements they place on business to publicly disclose what they are doing to tackle forced labour and human trafficking. We strongly believe that, as a socially conscious business, we have a duty to do everything we can to prevent slavery in our operations and supply chain. Integrity is one of our core values and being open and honest with our suppliers and customers is a key part of this.

We value our relationships with all our suppliers and understand we are only as good as the workforce producing our products. Mitre acknowledges that modern slavery is an ongoing global issue, which presents potential harm to workers in all industries and sectors and a risk to the businesses employing them. We are committed to working closely with our suppliers and business partners to prevent all forms of slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking.

Ensuring a responsible and ethical supply chain is a key component of our sustainability programme and we have a series of robust policies and governance procedures in place. We continue to review and assess the risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain and ensure we have appropriate due diligence in place to reduce the risks. A key element of our sourcing operations is ensuring that our suppliers in Asia are subject to on-going labour and quality checks, including audit and engagement. We continue to train our employees and raise awareness of modern slavery across the organisation.

This statement sets out the steps we are taking to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in the operations and supply chains of all parts of the business included within our financial statement for the year 2022. This statement was approved by the Advisory Board of Mitre on 29th June 2023.
