Anti-Slavery Policy Statement
- CMS Window Systems (CMS) – Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the Financial Year 2017/2018
- This statement specifically refers to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and sets out the steps that CMS have taken to ensure that slavery, and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Supply Chain Standards
- The CMS commitment to Anti-Slavery is reinforced within the ‘Equality & Diversity’ and ‘Dignity & Respect at Work’ policies for employers, employees, and sub-contractors. Each CMS supplier within the supply chain is required to provide information as part of the CMS Supplier Evaluation Questionnaire on such matters as:
- Does your organisation have a documented policy to ensure that neither slavery nor human trafficking takes place within your organisation? If no, please provide details of what your organisation does to prevent slavery or human trafficking.
- Does your organisation have a documented policy to ensure that neither slavery nor human trafficking takes place within its supply chain?
Slavery and Human Trafficking
- Slavery and forced labour can take many forms, including human trafficking or child labour, which CMS Window Systems will not tolerate. CMS therefore conduct internal audits of both the contracted suppliers and waste management companies to ensure compliance.
- CMS Window Systems achieve anti-slavery key performance indicators (KPIs) by regularly conducting internal training, which refers to the ‘Human Rights Act 1998’, ‘Health & Safety At Work Act 1974’, and ‘Corporate Responsibility’. If any issues are identified during an audit, the company responsible is required to prepare a corrective action plan and resolve all violations within an agreed period.
All employees of CMS Window Systems have a responsibility to assist the company to meet these terms and conditions and are to provide feedback as required for continual improvement. This statement will be reviewed annually.
