Transparency in our supply chains
We recognise that Cabline UK is potentially exposed to some degree of risk when dealing with its suppliers, although all of our suppliers are entirely UK based. The following measures to review and manage this risk are:
- Examination of supply chains. We have mapped our supply chains and have a clear screening and vetting process for all approved suppliers.
- The top 20% of suppliers whom we place the greatest spend we have mapped those according to location, size and type, to identify and clarify them as low risk. And we audit them on site annually to ensure they are compliant with all of our agreed criteria.
- Confirmation by top suppliers, in terms of spend and turnover, of compliance to the Act through their own modern slavery statements if applicable.
- A commitment to collaborate closely with suppliers to help them understand and work towards their own obligations under the Modern Slavery Act.
- A Responsible Purchasing Policy, which reflects our commitment to and focus on suppliers’ ethical supply chain(s)
