Communique Promotions Ltd
MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT
Statement of Policy
This statement is made pursuant to The Modern Slavery Act 2015, and sets out the steps that Communique Promotions Ltd has taken (and is continuing to take) to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Communique Promotions Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Our business Communique Promotions Ltd is an Events Agency based in near Bicester, Oxfordshire and has been trading since 1997. It plans and implements a variety of business to business, business to consumer and business to employee events on behalf of corporate clients globally. Typically this could be a conference, launch, exhibition, activation or roadshow.
We have identified our high risk areas as follows:
Bad employment practices by suppliers and contractors to the business both in the UK and oversees. We mitigate these risks by having a clear supplier due diligence process and communication of expectations to staff and suppliers. See further clarification below.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
Communique Promotions Ltd operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery. Where possible, site visits to suppliers’ premises are also undertaken. Our anti-slavery policy forms part of our contract with all suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy.
In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
We regularly conduct training for our staff responsible for buying so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain
