This statement sets out the steps that LifeTein has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain. This statement relates to the period Aug 1, 2022 toAug 1, 2023.
LifeTein has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery, including servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. 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 modern slavery within our business and supply chain.
This statement covers the activities of LifeTein.
LifeTein has reviewed material suppliers to assess whether any particular risks of slavery or human trafficking arise. We do not consider that key relationships with professional or business services suppliers, such as those who provide hosting support services, give rise to material risks in this area. Risk may however have the potential to arise in relation to services such as internal facilities management, catering and the supply of office electronic equipment. We manage this risk through the use of suppliers whom are considered to be reputable, and we have specifically requested all material regular suppliers to confirm that their own business activities and supply chain do not involve slavery or human trafficking.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure we conduct business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if no reports are received from employees, suppliers, the public or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified. In 2022, LifeTein received no reports from employees, suppliers, the public or law enforcement agencies of alleged modern slavery practices within our business or supply chain.
