allnex Australia has released its first Modern Slavery Statement which aims to demonstrate the steps and actions it has undertaken to manage the potential risk and occurrence of modern slavery in its operations.
Modern slavery describes situations where offenders use coercion, threats or deception to exploit victims and undermine their freedom. It is a term used to describe serious exploitation.
allnex Australia is committed to doing business ethically and responsibly, not only through compliance with laws, business integrity, health, safety, environmental protection and sustainability, but also to human rights, including identifying and addressing modern slavery risks. The Statement describes the activities allnex has undertaken to strengthen its processes to better understand and address the risks, and strive to eliminate modern slavery in its operations and supply chains.
“Allnex Australia is committed to working with its stakeholders and business partners to assess and address the risks of modern slavery in its operations and supply chain, and to incorporate its approach of managing modern slavery risks into its overall corporate governance and compliance framework” Zel Medak, Regional Business Director AO.
