This statement is made in accordance with section 54, part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out Festo GB’s current position and intentions regarding compliance with the act within our supply chains and any other part of our business.
Our company activities are in the field of automation and the provision of engineering solutions within the manufacturing industry, we have a variety of suppliers to support us through the different aspects of our business with the bulk of our products originating from our parent company Festo AG in Germany.
As a global company, we are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking within our supply chains or in any part of our business, and that our activities and those of our suppliers are aligned to the letter and spirit of the act. To date we have seen no evidence of modern slavery in our organisation or supply chains. However, we are committed to continuing to focus on putting measures in place to mitigate risk.
In Festo GB, we are in the process of reviewing our supply chain with Headquarters to ensure that we meet our obligations and are working to our global Code of Conduct and Supplier Code of Conduct in the interim period.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Once we are confident that a full review has taken place we will publish a detailed statement.
