This Statement, made March 2021, sets out Insight’s commitment to combating modern slavery and human trafficking. It details the actions taken to ensure there is no modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour or exploitation in its own business or its supply chain. It is made under section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labor and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern ;slavery and 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.
Insight fully supports the goals of modern slavery laws, such as the Australia Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Commonwealth), U.K. Modern Slavery Act 2015, and California Transparency in Supply Chain Act 2010. We strive to respect and promote human rights in accordance with the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in our relationships with our employees, suppliers, and partners. Our Code of Conduct, Supplier Code of Conduct, Corporate Citizenship Report and Human Rights Policy support our culture.
