Modern slavery in the 21st century
Identifying and addressing modern slavery risks is an obligation we take seriously. Under the new Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act, the law requires us to disclose the steps we've taken to assess and address risks of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain each year.
What is modern slavery?
Modern slavery is the severe exploitation of other people for personal or commercial gain. It's when offenders use coercion, threats or deception to exploit victims and undermine their freedom. Each year, millions of people become entrapped with different forms of modern slavery, including human trafficking, child labour, forced marriage, and deceptive recruiting for work or services. These practices are an abuse of human rights and are serious crimes.
We're deeply committed to upholding human rights across our operations and supply chains. We believe every person has the right to freedom, safety and respect, and recognise the critical role we play in identifying modern slavery risks throughout the organisation.
