Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Our Code of Conduct and Modern Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

Zellis have refreshed the control processes that ensure adherence to the policy framework across our supply base. This has been addressed through the implementation of a revised supplier assurance process that will rigorously assure all suppliers against the policy framework and has been implemented from December 2019. Where highlighted by our risk analysis, we may require more rigorous assurances/controls from those suppliers that they are in turn properly managing their Modern Slavery risks.

We also encourage, and will actively respond to, whistle blowers reporting actual or suspected concerns in the area of modern slavery and human trafficking.


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.

Further steps

Following the successful implementation of our supplier risk assessment process we will continue to review and further develop and monitor our slavery and human trafficking risk mitigation systems..
