MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT
We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking. We recognize that slavery and human trafficking is a real yet hidden issue in our society. We will not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our business or supply chain. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that any form of slavery is not taking place in our own business or supply chains.
We are a service-led, management consulting and advisory business, and supplier to most markets globally. Our ultimate parent company is Envorso LLC with our head office based in the USA.
Envorso Limited operates out of the UK.
- Primary focus is a broad set of capabilities across the business transformation and project delivery space.
We operate several internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
- Recruitment – we operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
- Whistleblowing – our whistleblowing policy ensures that all employees know that they can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisal.
- Health and Safety – this policy sets out our approach to ensure we provide a healthy working environment for our staff and contractors that work out of our premises.
Our supply chains.
Our supply chains are based throughout the world and include suppliers of direct materials (suitable office supplies), suppliers of indirect services (professional services, facilities, sales and marketing agencies) and partners for our services.
We conduct due diligence on all suppliers assessed by our leadership team as critical and/or major to the business before allowing them to become one of our suppliers. This due diligence includes assessing applicable regulatory licenses and certificates, compliance with such regulatory bodies, checks to determine the financial stability of the supplier as well as carrying out supplier audits, where appropriate.
We intend to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking:
- risk assess all new suppliers using the Global Slavery Index and where applicable request them to certify that they have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their own organization and supply chain.
- notify all existing suppliers of our expectations and their obligations in relation to the prohibition of modern slavery.
- incorporate anti-slavery and human trafficking obligations into procurement agreements and subcontracting arrangements on a risk assessed basis.
- include appropriate measures in our due diligence processes for sourcing suppliers, subcontractors and acquisitions on a risk assessed basis.
- provide training to relevant Envorso employees to ensure a high-level understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking; and
where appropriate we will include reference to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 in our policies and procedures.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Envorso’ s slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.
