SURVIVA Ltd. MODERN SLAVERY ACT STATEMENT
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out actions taken by SURVIVA Ltd. to understand potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains including efforts to build a comprehensive compliance program across our organisation.
SURVIVA is a leading manufacturer of innovative single-use PPE and survival products used every day within healthcare and outdoor markets. We have a small group <10 employees and generated <£10,000 of sales in fiscal year 2020. SURVIVA’s supply chains include the sourcing of plastic film, packaging components and industrial equipment. SURVIVA’s approach to its supply chain is one of “local value delivery,” that is, we try to source as locally as possible. We develop long- lasting relationships with our suppliers, which allows us to better understand their business models and commitment to following our ‘Supplier Code of Conduct’, including anti-slavery and anti- trafficking expectations.
SURVIVA has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking. SURVIVA is deeply committed to compliance with laws of all jurisdictions in which we do business, including laws designed to eliminate slavery and human trafficking, and expects all employees to adopt this commitment. SURVIVA expects the same high standard of our supply chain.
Slavery and human trafficking are serious problems in many parts of the world. While we have not been directly affected by these issues SURVIVA understands our responsibility to be aware of them and intends to do our part to combat slavery and human trafficking. The functions of Purchasing, Legal, Human Resources, and Ethics and Compliance work together to track applicable laws, develop risk assessments, raise awareness around policies and procedures, and conduct training.
Relevant Policies and Procedures SURVIVA operates under the following policies and procedures that describe its approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations and supply chain.
Human Rights. SURVIVA’s policy on human rights is designed to combat modern day slavery and human trafficking. The policy applies to all SURVIVA employees and may be used to hold our suppliers and business partners accountable. It highlights our respect for internationally-recognised human rights and the dignity of all people. This includes, but is not limited to: freedom from forced labour, respecting the rights of children and indigenous peoples, compensating team members fairly, providing a safe work environment, following local laws and regulations and respecting freedom of association.
• Speaking Up. SURVIVA encourages all its employees, customers, and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities of the organisation or in its supply chain. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. The organisation’s whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for employees, or any stakeholder, to say something if they
see something, without fear of retaliation. Any issues around slavery and human trafficking would be categorised as a “high risk” and the corresponding response would be met with equal attention. Employees, customers or other stakeholders who have concerns can use our 24/7 email address to report any concerns. The investigative process has been kept consistent across the organisation. This helps ensure timely investigations and disciplinary fairness and consistency.
- Code of Business Ethics. SURVIVA’s Code of Business Ethics makes clear to employees the actions and behaviours expected of them when representing the organisation. In fact, it provides questions for someone to ask themselves in order to help their decision-making process, including: Is it Illegal? How will you feel about the decision? How will others feel? How would you feel if the world knew about the decision? Does it make sense? Is it fair? Will management approve? These questions are meant to have people think before making a decision, and if they are unsure, to seek guidance from their manager, Human Resources, the Ethics Committee or the Legal Department. The Code of Business Ethics is the foundation for our organisation to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating and managing its supply chain.
- Supplier Code of Conduct. SURVIVA is committed to ensuring that our suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethics. Suppliers are required to demonstrate that they provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour. We reserve the right to audit our supplier facilities and are willing to work with them to ensure they meet the standards of SURVIVA’s ‘Supplier Code of Conduct and provide their workers with appropriate working conditions. Serious violations of the organisation’s Supplier Code of Conduct may lead to the termination of the business relationship.
Victims Protection Act that was signed into law on January 9, 2019. It also affirms our commitment to act as a responsible company and in a manner that reflects our core values. Our customers rightly expect us to be a leader in procurement and we expect the same of our suppliers.
Risk Assessment and Due diligence
SURVIVA performs an annual risk assessment, which includes cross-functional participants, within the Senior Management, including functions represented by Legal, Ethics and Compliance, Human Resources and Purchasing. We believe that the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain is very low. However, SURVIVA also recognises that the severity of such activities should it become real. This is one reason why SURVIVA undertakes due diligence when considering working with new suppliers. New suppliers are required to agree to our current ‘Supplier Code of Conduct’ and provide relevant certifications, including that (i) no materials supplied to SURVIVA are produced directly or
indirectly by means of slavery or human trafficking and (ii) they comply with all applicable laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they do business
This has been a uniquely challenging year with COVID-19 and a period during which we have had to remain alert to the potential for modern slavery risks to be impacted, including with respect to the health and safety of workers. While we have not identified new risks, we have worked with teams at all levels in our supply chain to react to the changing landscape to maintain the integrity of a safe and secure supply chain. Most importantly, this has continued to reinforce our ongoing commitment that the health and wellness of our team members remains a top priority.
SURVIVA not only performs due diligence on new suppliers, but regularly reviews existing suppliers. The main purpose of these reviews and onsite visits is to ensure they are meeting our standards (e.g., in regards to quality and delivery). However, while reviewing and/or visiting a supplier, we may check their practices to ensure they are not participating in any form of slavery or human trafficking.
Training / Awareness-Raising Program
SURVIVA provided training on matters relating to the eradication of slavery and human trafficking. This training includes the Senior Management team, which we believe is important in order to set the right tone at the top.
As well as training employees, SURVIVA has raised awareness of modern slavery issues by putting up posters across the organisation’s premises by circulating emails, and posting information company information board, describing the problem of slavery and Human trafficking, the importance of being a proactive company to help eliminate the problem, and persons to contact with questions.
