This statement outlines the actions we have taken and continue to ensure that our business and our supply chain are slavery free.

Since the date of enfinium’s last Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement:
enfinium’s procurement and supply chain department plays a key role in the identification and management of slavery and human trafficking risk within the organisation.
enfinium has a dedicated internal procurement and supply chain department that is responsible for the process of procuring the goods and/or services to the enfinium facilities in order to fulfil its business model. This centralised team oversees all procurement across enfinium’s business and is responsible for sourcing all supplies required for the day-to-day running of the business. The consistency of personnel and approach allows a proactive and rigorous evaluation process for all new suppliers, requiring them to demonstrate compliance with all relevant legislation and codes of practice including, but not limited to, health and safety of employees and suppliers, non-discrimination, bribery and corruption and modern slavery.
Compliance is also addressed in the enfinium standard terms and conditions which govern the majority of enfinium’s supplier contracts. These standard terms and conditions require our suppliers to comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and enfinium has the right to terminate a supply contract should a supplier be in breach of these requirements.
enfinium has a full suite of standards, policies and procedures to manage its day-to-day business, which are adhered to throughout the enfinium organisation and its supply chain.
enfinium’s anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all of 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 supply chains. All employees are made aware of the policy and must confirm that they have read and understood its content.
enfinium also has a whistleblowing policy so that all employees are able to raise concerns about practices within our business or supply chain without fear of reprisals.
In order to raise awareness of, and to ensure a high level of understanding of, the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our senior managers, site based staff and supply chain management staff. This training includes:
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the enfinium anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st December 2019.
