The Organisation considers that modern slavery encompasses:
The Organisation acknowledges its responsibilities in relation to tackling modern slavery and commits to complying with the provisions in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The Organisation understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relation to its labour force and, additionally, its supply chains.
The Organisation does not enter into business with any other organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
No labour provided to the Organisation in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The Organisation strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in UK, Pakistan, Australia, South Africa and Barbados and in many cases exceeds those minimums in relation to its employees.
In order to fulfil its activities, the main supply chains of the Organisation include Tours Operators, Travel Agents, Airlines and office suppliers/ contractors.
The Organisation considers its main exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking to exist in Pakistan because the provision of labour is in a country where protection against breaches of human rights may be limited.
In general, the Organisation considers its exposure to slavery/human trafficking to be relatively limited because we directly employee all the staff in our Pakistan office.
The Organisation carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its organisation or supply chains, including conducting a review of the controls of its suppliers.
The Organisation has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with modern slavery.
In accordance with section 54(4) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the Organisation has taken the following steps to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place:
