Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms,
such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which
have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for
personal or commercial gain.
Fish Guidance Systems Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and
enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere
in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our
approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure
obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business
partners, and as part of our contracting processes, in the coming year we will include specific
prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery
or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own
suppliers to the same high standards.
