Here are the steps Othrys has taken and continues to take to understand and minimise the potential risk of modern slavery in its business and supply chains.
This statement is published in line with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Our commitment to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015
Othrys is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking.
As an equal opportunity’s employer, we're committed to creating and ensuring a non- discriminatory and respectful working environment for our staff. We want all our staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.
Our recruitment and people management processes are designed to ensure that all prospective employees are legally entitled to work in the UK and to safeguard employees from any abuse or coercion.
We do not enter into business with any organisation, in the UK or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
Due to the nature of our business, we assess ourselves to have a low risk of modern slavery in our business and supply chains.
Our supply chains are limited and we procure services from a restricted range of UK and overseas suppliers, mainly through our Associates, who are all individually chosen and invited. We are in a very strong position to use OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) tools available to us to find out as much as is openly available about who we deal with as suppliers and clients.
