We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships, and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our own business or supply chain. This statement sets out our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, which his a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Who is this statement for?
This statement is intended for all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity. This statement is non-contractual.
International Synergies Limited is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending 05/04/2024.
As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:
- We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
- We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.
To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:
- We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed.
- We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business.
- Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking
International Synergies Limited is widely acknowledged as experts in delivering, enabling and supporting industrial symbiosis globally, working with public and private sector clients, institutions and the research community. We operate in the UK and serve clients worldwide. Our business structure is less than 20 employees between offices in England and Northern Ireland.
Our supply chain includes small businesses in the United Kingdom providing software and IT support. We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others. We do not believe that our supply chain is in one of those sectors.
Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.
In our business, the Board of Directors is responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking.
We also encourage all employees to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
