Future Street Anti Slavery Policy Statement
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Modern slavery is a global phenomenon that is both inter and intra-national, affecting an estimated 45 million people worldwide. There is no typical victim, though it is often more prevalent amongst the most vulnerable, and within minority or excluded groups.
Future Street Smart Waste Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships, and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls, to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, and 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, whether adults or children, and we expect and require that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
