Probrand Group is committed to driving out acts of modern day slavery from within its own business and that from within its supply chains. The company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation.
The organisational structure of the business is a privately owned company that resells IT technology goods and services to business and public sector customers throughout the UK. Within our industry there are multiple layers to the supply chain consisting of distributors and manufacturers.
While it is impractical for an organisation to audit and monitor each and every supplier in its entire supply chain at all levels, it should be possible to identify key vulnerabilities and take a risk-management approach to ethical procurement. As part of the company’s due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of controls undertaken by the supplier. This forms part of the standard requirements of supplier engagement. Written correspondence is requested and provided by each supplier, detailing the systems, procedures and policies in place to combat slavery in its own supply chains.
The company will strictly not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
The company directors and senior management shall take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation and its supply chains.
