We operate 3 online platforms serving customers globally. Our supply chain spans multiple countries, involving a diverse range of suppliers and partners.

 

Our Commitment
We are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of ethical conduct and human rights. Modern slavery, including forced labor, human trafficking, and child labor, is a violation of fundamental human rights, and we are committed to ensuring that our business and supply chains are free from such practices.

 

Our Policies
To combat modern slavery, we have implemented the following policies:

1. Code of Conduct: Our Code of Conduct outlines our commitment to ethical business practices and sets expectations for our employees, suppliers, and partners to uphold human rights and labor standards.
2. Supplier Code of Ethics: All suppliers must adhere to our Supplier Code of Ethics, which includes provisions against forced labor, child labor, and human trafficking. Suppliers are required to sign and commit to this code as part of our onboarding process.
3. Whistleblowing Policy: We encourage employees and suppliers to report any concerns regarding unethical practices, including modern slavery, through our confidential whistleblowing channels. All reports are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly.

 

Due Diligence Processes
To identify and mitigate risks related to modern slavery, we have established the following due diligence processes:

1. Supplier Assessments: We conduct regular assessments and audits of our suppliers to ensure compliance with our ethical standards. This includes evaluating their labor practices and working conditions.
2. Risk Assessments: We perform risk assessments to identify areas within our supply chains that may be vulnerable to modern slavery. High-risk areas are given priority for audits and corrective actions.
3. Employee Training: We provide training for our employees to raise awareness of modern slavery issues and equip them with the knowledge to identify and address potential risks.

 

Continuous Improvement
We are committed to continuous improvement in our efforts to combat modern slavery. We regularly review and update our policies, practices, and training programs to ensure they remain effective and aligned with best practices.

 

Collaboration and Transparency

We believe in working collaboratively with our stakeholders, including suppliers, industry groups, and non-governmental organisations, to address the root causes of modern slavery. We are committed to transparency in our efforts and will report annually on the progress we have made in combating modern slavery.

 

Conclusion

The Anima Group is resolute in its commitment to eradicating modern slavery and human trafficking within our business and supply chains. We will continue to take proactive measures to ensure that our operations are conducted ethically and that human rights are respected.
