OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our
supply chains or in any part of our own business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our
commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to
implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human
trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business and in our supply chains.
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
As part of our initiative to identify risk and mitigate against such risks our directors carry out
regular reviews to ensure that our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy is being followed
by the management in all areas of our business. We have in place systems across our business
and our supply chains to:-
• Identify inappropriate employment practices
• Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring.
• Identify and monitor other potential risk areas.
• Protect whistleblowers.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES AND ETHICS
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply
chain comply with our values we operate in line with principles of responsible sourcing,
including paying employees at the prevailing minimum wage applicable. We expect our
suppliers to adhere to the same principles of best practice by sourcing responsibly.
DIRECTORS’ ANNUAL REPORT ON THEIR RISK ASSESSMENT REVIEW & FINDINGS
The directors confirm that they have overall responsibility for implementing the Anti-slavery
and human trafficking policy and for reviewing its effectiveness on a regular annual basis. This
requires that the management at all levels must report any such instances of concern
promptly to the directors so as to enable them to take immediate corrective action.
During the year ended 31st March 2019 the directors carried out an annual review in
accordance with the anti-slavery & human trafficking guidelines. Their discussions with the
managers in our UK boutiques confirmed that there were no instances of slavery or human
trafficking in our company during the year. There were also no instances of any reports
received by our managers relating to unethical sourcing of precious and semi-precious stones
from zones of conflict by our supply chains. We will never knowingly engage with a supplier
involved in such unethical sourcing practices and if we suspect or become aware of any such
cases we will engage constructively with the supplier for their immediate remedial action or
otherwise refrain from doing any further business with them. The directors’ review also
confirmed that there were no cases of forced labour, physical or sexual violence, slavery,
intimidation, bullying or harassment arising within our management and workforce during
the year under review. Furthermore, no employee will be treated detrimentally on the
grounds that they have reported in good faith to the management or directors their suspicion
of instances of modern slavery in our business or supply chain.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, in our supply chains and in our business partners, we provide relevant training to our staff.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ended 31st March 2019.
