Modern slavery act
Statement of Daimler pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 came into effect on 29th October 2015. This law requires manufacturers and retailers doing business in the UK which supply goods or services and have an annual turnover exceeding £36 million to disclose information regarding their policies to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain and within their business.
Athlon UK Ltd is proud of the integrity measures it takes in this regard. Daimler efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain and own business include the following.
Written policies and procedures
Athlon UK maintains written policies that strictly prohibit the use of slavery or human trafficking in its direct supply chain. These include Athlon UK’s brochure entitled “Ethical Business – Our Shared Responsibility” in which we communicate our ethical principles and associated expectations to our supply chain. Our supplier code of conduct requires all Athlon UK suppliers to sign up to a sustainability clause which details all requirements around forced labour, slavery and human trafficking. This can be found on the supplier portal as follows https://supplier-portal.daimler.com/portal/en
When a supplier signs up to our sustainability clause, it receives official certification to this effect. By this certification the suppliers Athlon UK interact with confirm they will adhere to the guidelines and expectations that Athlon would expect, focusing on but not limited to “Child Labour Avoidance”, “Freely Chosen Employment”, and “Freedom of Association” in line with the Modern Slavery Act. This agreement is mandatory and Athlon UK does not deal with suppliers who do not sign up to this clause.
Third party audits
Athlon UK has a right at any time to audit suppliers for compliance against the sustainability clause.
Athlon UK has a zero tolerance policy towards violations of the laws banning forced labour, slavery and human trafficking. Athlon UK contractual agreements permit the termination of suppliers for a single violation.
Written policies and procedures
Athlon UK’s Integrity Code details the rules and procedures by which we should treat fellow employees. This includes:
- Transparent and fair behaviour, such as protecting human rights
- Compliance with legislation, including fundamental rights at work – in particular freedom of association and elimination of discrimination throughout employment
Athlon UK conducts on-line and face to face training for all employees to emphasise the importance of acting with integrity and in line with our own internal Ethical Business Code.
Compliance officers incorporate guidance regarding the Modern Slavery Act into regular company training sessions.
Athlon UK regularly undertakes a Human Rights Compliance Assessment to ensure that all areas of its business are compliant with its Ethical Business Code and international human rights standards and that all employees are treated in a fair and transparent manner. This includes adherence to the Working Time Directive and the Minimum Wage.
Athlon UK disciplinary policy permits the termination of employees found to be involved in any breach of the law banning forced labour, slavery and human trafficking.
Athlon UK will continue to update its policies and procedures as required to ensure it maintains appropriate safeguards against any mistreatment of persons involved in its supply chain or own business.
