Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
The Red Kite Baby Co Ltd are committed to ensuring that its staff and any workers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and or similar human rights abuses.
We are also committed to ensuring our approach to tackling modern slavery in our own business and throughout our supply chains is consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain.
This statement sets out Red Kite’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to the business and to ensure steps are maintained to prevent both slavery and human trafficking.
Red Kite is an import and distribution company supplying juvenile products to retailers throughout the UK.
Red Kite’s Modern Slavery Policy, along with our Corporate Social Responsibility, Anti-Bribery and Whistle-blowing policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
Our Processes for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing supply chains
Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
Protect whistle blowers.
After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
To maintain awareness and ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business our Modern Slavery Policy is included in our Employee Handbook.
We provide training to all members of staff and this has been incorporated into our induction programme.
This statement has been approved by the Red Kite Commercial Director and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2020. This statement will be reviewed and updated annually.
