This statement is made by Atnahs in support of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking and recognise that we have a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking. We are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. At all times we seek to be vigilant and we report and act upon any concerns raised by any of our stakeholders.
At its core, our business is based on delivering high-quality medicines in a way that demonstrates our responsibility as a business to ensure we adhere to the highest standards of medical practice. We firmly believe that this includes fair and honest management of our supply chains.
We have a zero tolerance to modern slavery and this is reflected in our Anti-slavery and human trafficking policy which is applicable to employees and our supply chain. Amongst other things, the policy educates the reader on what modern slavery is and encourages the prompt reporting of any activity that would constitute modern slavery. The board requests updates on what the business units have done to tackle the issue of modern slavery. Our business practices also aim to prevent violations such as making on time and sufficient payments and acting fairly in its requests and demands for goods and services. We also set the ordering standards of our customers to ensure that we too are not faced with high pressure and unmanageable deadlines.
Each financial year, Atnahs publishes a statement setting out the steps we have taken to contribute towards tackling this issue. This statement relates to our actions and activities during the financial year ended 31 March 2019 and thereafter.
