Modern Slavery

MPI Limited (MPI) is committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.

MPI is 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 similar human rights abuses.

MPI provides appropriate training and awareness information for all of its members of staff. In particular:

·        Our senior management team receive detailed briefings in identifying and resolving concerns around modern slavery and human trafficking.

·      All of our staff members receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern slavery and human trafficking, so that they can bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.

Any staff, workers or other parties are strongly encouraged to report any concerns or suspicions that they might have to the Managing Director.

Reports surrounding these issues are taken extremely seriously by the senior management team, who are committed to ensuring that all investigations shall be prompt and effective.

If our investigations reveal any issues, we are committed to taking appropriate action, including but not limited to:

·  Working with the appropriate organisations to improve standards,

·  Removing that organisation from our preferred supplier list,

·  Passing details to appropriate law enforcement bodies.

We regularly monitor our risks in this area through the use of relevant key performance indicators, including:

·  The number of suppliers who provide their own modern slavery statements,

·  The effectiveness of enforcement against suppliers who breach policies,

·  The amount of time spent on audits, re-audits, and related due diligence, and

·  The level of modern slavery awareness amongst our staff.

As part of our efforts in this area, we publish a modern slavery statement on an annual basis.

We would also recommend reading this in conjunction with our other policies, including our:

·  Corporate Social Responsibility Policy,

·  Ethical Trading Policy,

·  Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy, and

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
