Risks of Modern Slavery Practices in our Operations and Supply Chain
The Group operates solely in Australia where the culture, laws and standards of our society support the rights and freedom of the individuals within our community. Even in this environment, the Group recognises that the risk of modern slavery and exploitation does exist within Australia.
The Group has no tolerance for practices that do not respect the rights of individuals. The Group’s approach to the risk assessments and practices described within this report reflects this overall level of risk.
The areas of the Group which are assessed to have a higher risk of modern slavery practices are limited to where our operations may be connected to modern slavery through the activities of suppliers of goods and labour we have a business relationship with. This includes the risk of work being undertaken by unskilled labour of the contractor/supplier (such as on-site labour or cleaners), or materials from its suppliers that are imported from countries where modern slavery practices might exist.
