Modern Slavery Statement
Modern Slavery Statement 2022/2023
Modern slavery is a serious and cruel crime that sees exploitation of human beings around the world for financial and criminal gain.
There is no typical victim of modern slavery, and we recognise that acts of slavery could come from
people exploited for work, labour, criminality, or domestic servitude. It is therefore imperative that
we maintain our ethical and legal duties to prevent any form of human exploitation through the
processes defined in this policy.
VCG has committed itself to ensure itself and its supply chains are thoroughly scrutinised to ensure
that neither it nor its partners profit from the inhuman exploitation of others.
We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and 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 anywhere in our own
business or our supply chain.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach
to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chain. We expect the same high standards from
all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners. As part of our contracting processes,
we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
This modern slavery policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity,
including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers,
agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives, and business partners. This
policy does not form part of the employee employment and we may amend it at any time time.
