This statement is made on behalf of the Cleverly Limited pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the 'Act') and constitutes our group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 June 2021.
As an organisation whose purpose is to provide complete and bespoke software solutions, with innovative processes, exceptional customer service and consistent delivery through our people, we wholeheartedly welcome the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Our position on human rights within Cleverly is clear and covered in our Ethical Purchasing Policy and in our Corporate Governance and Ethics Policy. This legislation is a crucially important development in tackling slavery and human trafficking, and we will not trade or partner with any business or organisation which is involved in this shocking practice, however remotely or indirectly. We respect the human rights of all our employees and those within our supply chain and have zero tolerance of slavery and human trafficking.
All our businesses are dependent on their people and supply chains to support the delivery of our services. Each business is responsible to ensure that they can demonstrate they are compliant with the Modern Slavery Act by working to our policies and procedures.
