Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Goodwater is committed to driving out acts of modern-day slavery and human trafficking within the business and our supply chains, including sub-contractors, and partners. We acknowledge our responsibility under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with our suppliers of goods and services to us – ie our supply chain.

As part of our due diligence procedures into slavery and human trafficking, the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by suppliers. Imported goods from sources outside the UK and EU are potentially more at risk from slavery/human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored.

Goodwater will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.

This organisation and our senior management will take responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and will provide adequate resources (training, etc.) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation and our supply chains.

A full copy of this policy will be accessible to all employees electronically and can be obtained from any member of management upon request.

This Policy underlines our commitment to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will be reviewed annually and published as required.

Formal procedures concerning slavery and human trafficking have been established, including disciplinary procedures where they are breached. Additional procedures ensure that this policy is understood and communicated to all levels of the company, and that it is regularly reviewed to ensure its continuing suitability and relevance to our activities.
