MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT 2021
Unfortunately, slavery, human trafficking and child labour remain a hidden blight on our global society and we all have
a responsibility to be alert to the risks, no matter how small. We are committed to ensuring that there is no human
trafficking, debt bondage, illegal or child labour within our business, across our supply chains, business relationships, or
in indeed any part of our business. We are also committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business
relationships. Albeit our modern slavery risk is low given we work exclusively within the UK; we remain vigilant and
continuously challenge ourselves to better understanding the risk and its associated controls.
This policy outlines our commitment and how we will combat modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour.
Our board of directors have ultimate responsibility for our human rights policy which includes our modern slavery and
human trafficking commitment. Risks in relation to ethics and compliance, including human rights, modern slavery and
human trafficking are regularly reviewed at our Management Review Meetings. Our team leaders are responsible for
upholding our modern slavery commitment across our contracts by ensuring the identification, prevention and
mitigation of any adverse human rights, modern slavery and human trafficking impacts caused by, or contributed to by
Rapid IT Recycling Ltd.’s operations or by the actions of our customers and supply chain.

employee receives an induction that includes an awareness on modern day slavery and our policy and expectations.

chains and that we achieve compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 we will:
