Modern Slavery Statement 2021/22
This statement has been published in accordance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by Swift Group Ltd to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
Swift Leisure Holdings Limited, together with its subsidiaries (collectively “Swift”) understands that Modern Slavery and human trafficking is a crime which results in abhorrent abuse of human rights; constituted in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 by the offences of 'slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour' and human trafficking.
With business operations and supply chains ranging across the globe and covering multiple jurisdictions, Swift is aware of its responsibilities to respect and protect the rights of individuals and communities affected by its activities. We remain committed to working to prevent Modern Slavery and human trafficking from occurring within our business operations and supply chains. We fully recognise the importance of collaborating with and helping our stakeholders understand the impact of modern slavery and aim to ensure we eradicate this from our operations.
We consider the biggest exposure to Modern Slavery is through our current supply chain. The Swift Supply Chain and QA departments have in place a due diligence process which includes auditing suppliers on a regular basis to ensure compliance is met and understand any potential supply chain risks.
The Swift supplier auditing process for new and existing suppliers makes reference to the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. This is executed in the supply chain areas that have been identified by Swift, as a risk. This has been carried out by mapping our supply chains by commodity related to their geographical source of supply.
