This Modern Slavery Act was updated on 1st September 2021
The Modern Slavery Act requires businesses to disclose policies, plans and actions to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in supply chains. The disclosures are intended to enable customers to make informed choices about the products and services they buy and companies they support.
Decarb Connect Ltd is committed to maintaining and improving its supplier policies and processes to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business or within our supply chains.
Decarb Connect Ltd develops private membership networks and produces a variety of digital B2B content and conferences to serve the industrial decarbonisation ecosystem.
In doing so, we rely on suppliers, who are based in multiple locations around the world. Key suppliers are those providing digital marketing services, hotel venues, tech and AV support. This necessitates careful evaluation of such suppliers.
Supply Chain verification
Decarb Connect undertakes informal supplier selection procedures across all of its activities. These policies and procedures include reviews with reference to slavery and human trafficking. A key element of our supplier selection is to ensure that rigorous and effective anti-slavery and human trafficking warranties and undertakings are in place throughout our contracts with third party suppliers.
Serious violations of our terms and conditions will result in the termination of the business relationship.
Our internal accountability standards and procedures help us to ensure that all our employees conduct business in an ethical manner. Decarb Connect requires its staff to comply with the laws of the countries in which we operate and with all our in house policies, including employee handbooks and standard operating procedures. Infringement of the law or company policies is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of the employment contract.
Decarb Connect encourages staff to make use of resources that educate them on the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains – also how to identify potential issues.
Our employees are encouraged to identify, prevent and if necessary report potential slavery or human trafficking issues.
