This statement is published in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. As a non-manufacturing organisation with a turnover under £36million, we are not obliged to publish a Modern Slavery Statement. However, we believe it is important to clearly state our commitment to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking in our operations and supply chains.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of human rights. It takes various forms, for instance slavery, servitude, human trafficking, and forced and compulsory labour, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Intersys has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We act ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships.
We will diligently assess contractors, suppliers and other business partners to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
We have excellent management visibility of our supply chain, which is non-manufacturing. Therefore, we have high confidence in future compliance with the Modern Slavery Act. Also, as part of our commitment to delivering a return on investment to clients, we source components and services from leading, reliable and highly visible providers.
These are organisations with transparent operational practices and we are confident of their commitment to anti-slavery practices. In the rare case that we source components or services from lesser-known organisations, we endeavour to research a business’ record and reputation in terms of legislative compliance and integrity.
We will continue to assess this statement periodically and introduce further processes to ensure our compliance, should it be deemed necessary at any time.
