Modern Slavery

Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement 2018–2019

Royal Collection Trust is committed to ensuring that no form of modern slavery, coerced labour or human trafficking is present within our own organisation or our supply chains.

We aim to conduct our commercial activities in an ethically, environmentally and socially responsible manner. We will not knowingly engage with suppliers of goods or services whose activities contravene our expected standards, and we require all suppliers to adopt the same approach to the management of their suppliers, employees and workers, and in the way they conduct business with third parties. 
 
We endeavour to ensure there is transparency in our approach to modern slavery throughout our supply chains, and our procurement process follows comprehensive internal guidelines. We seek assurance that suppliers are not complicit in any form of slavery, either directly or through their own supply chains, including the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or any adults or children held in slavery or servitude.  We also actively encourage them to use ‘fair trade’ sourced products and raw materials.  
 
Our Disclosure and Concern at Work policies clarify the protection offered to ‘whistle-blowers’ under the Public Interest Disclosures Act, and our Employee Assistance Programme provides an additional, third-party route for staff to seek advice on these matters. 
 
We will ensure that all our staff maintain the highest levels of honesty and integrity in the procurement process, and will continue to review our policies and procedures to identify, prevent and mitigate any risks of modern slavery or human trafficking. 
 
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
