Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made pursuant to s. 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that the Claverley Group Ltd and its subsidiary companies have taken and are continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within our business or its supply chains.

 

The company acknowledge its responsibilities under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and will ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation.

 

Our business Claverley Group Ltd (together with its subsidiary companies the Midland News Association, Press Computer Systems, Precision Colour Printing, Kennedy Enterprises, Cubiquity, HPCi Media and the Jersey Evening Post) is a diversified media, publishing and print company. We create, print and procure engaging content and products for multiple platforms, across print, online, mobile and tablets.

 

Our supply company chains include paper manufacturers, ink and paper suppliers, technology and other office equipment, professional services from solicitors and other professional advisors, technology, office cleaning, facility services, maintenance suppliers, motor services/suppliers, and toy manufacturers.

 

We are committed to improving our processes with regard to the Modern Slavery Act and acting ethically and with integrity in our business relationships. We will put in place effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is eradicated if and where it is discovered in our supply chains.

 

Imported supplies from sources from outside of the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery/human trafficking issues. The level of management control required for these sources will be continually monitored. As part of the company’s due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking, the supplier approval process will incorporate a review of the controls undertaken by the supplier.

 

The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.

 

The company directors and senior management shall take the responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives and shall provide adequate resources (training etc) and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the organisation or within its supply chains.

 

This policy statement will be reviewed annually and published on the company website.
