  • To inform our Employees on the role they have in the active monitoring of suppliers and in the report to
    their management if they suspect a person in the supply chain could be controlled or forced by someone to work or provide services.
  • To keep eyes and ears open on any situation in the supply chain that could be considered as modern slavery or human trafficking
