Modern Slavery Statement

We decided to take a stand against modern slavery after reading some publications we intend to disclose the websites that talk about this. Check out the websites below 

  1. World Economic Forum website: How to stop modern slavery
    Some believe that slavery is a thing of the past, but that is not the case. The most recent global slavery index estimates that there are 40.3 million women, men and children caught up in it, of whom 24.9 million are in forced labour and 15.4 million living in forced marriages. One in four victims of modern slavery are children.
    The phenomenon is another type of global pandemic and, contrary to popular belief, it is prevalent even in developed countries. In fact, more than one and a half million people are living in conditions of modern slavery in Europe, North America, Japan and Australia.
    But what exactly is modern slavery? The control of one person by another for economic exploitation, sexual use or psychological benefit, involving forced labour exploitation, forced sexual exploitation, forced marriage, state-imposed forced labour, forced child labour or child soldiering.
    It is also highly lucrative. A recent International Labour Organization report revealed that modern slavery is estimated to generate profits of $150 billion per year globally.
    Traffickers may be family members, employers or strangers, but each exploit the vulnerability of victims and are motivated by low risk and high reward.
  2. 7 Ways We Can Stop Modern Slavery
    Modern slavery currently deprives nearly 40 million people of their fundamental human rights and undermines their freedom. While anti-slavery organisations fight against the various forms of exploitation, their efforts still fall short when compared to the extent to which this problem prevails. Modern slavery cripples the world economy and human lives.
    If not dealt with appropriately, it can lead to a major decline in the acquisition of the right talent pool and the quality of life for many more people. To stop this exploitation, businesses in Australia are required by law to submit annual reports on what modern slavery risks they face and what actions they have adopted and planned to prevent it in the future. Businesses can also adopt some of the following methods, including modern slavery and human rights awareness training.
    • Acquire knowledge
    • Discourage ignorance
    • Support anti-slavery organisations
    • Be vocal
    • Socialise
    • Encourage volunteers
    • Corporate social responsibility


  3. What is modern slavery in supply chains?
    Anti-Slavery International defines modern slavery as the severe exploitation of other people for personal or commercial gain. Modern slavery practices include:
    • Forced labor, where a person is forced to work against their will or under the threat of punishment
    • Bonded labor, where a person cannot leave because they are bonded or indebted
    • Indentured labor, where agencies or brokers put people into debt with no other way to pay it off but to continue to work
    • Child labor, where children are exploited for the gain of adults who are not family members


  4. Discourage ignorance
    We consumers never ask ourselves why certain purchase prices are so convenient.
    Don’t we ask ourselves this because we don’t want to know or because we are deeply convinced that it is a question that makes no sense?
  5. Corporate social responsibility
    We intend to raise awareness among our partners, our suppliers, our customers, encouraging them to do something concrete when they have to hire people or manage them.
    Every time we come into contact with one of our suppliers we specifically ask them if they are exploiting labor and if they have verified that their production chain is unrelated to modern slavery.
  6. Anti-corruption
    Corruption moves money coming from the exploitation of workers. Therefore rejecting and opposing corruption implicitly cools the activities of modern slavery
  7. Some govrnemts are Combatting modern slavery
    New Zealand’s position
    New Zealand is committed to actively contributing to international efforts towards the elimination of modern slavery, including forced labour, child labour, people smuggling and trafficking. New Zealand’s trade policy also recognises the need to respect and incorporate the observance of fundamental labour rights in our trade agreements.
    New Zealand has enacted laws prohibiting slavery, trafficking in persons and forced labour in New Zealand and is a party to a number of international treaties dealing with the topic including:
    Medium and large organisations would be required to disclose the steps they are taking
    Large organisations and those with control over New Zealand employers would be required to undertake due diligence.
    New Zealand will also be undertaking work to develop and adopt a National Action Plan to implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights which provide a global standard for preventing and addressing the adverse human rights impacts linked to business activities.
