Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking

At Nuvias UC, we recognise the grave impact of modern slavery and human trafficking on individuals and society. We are committed to upholding fundamental human rights and ethical standards in all aspects of our business operations. As such, we have developed and implemented the following statement to demonstrate our dedication to combatting modern slavery and human trafficking:

Introduction:

Modern slavery encompasses various forms of exploitation, including slavery, servitude, forced labour, and human trafficking. At Nuvias UC, we maintain a zero-tolerance stance towards modern slavery and are dedicated to conducting our business with integrity and transparency. We strive to ensure that modern slavery is eradicated from our operations and supply chains.

Responsibility for the Policy:

The Board of Directors holds overall responsibility for ensuring compliance with this policy. Our CEO oversees its implementation, effectiveness, and addresses any inquiries regarding the policy. Management at all levels is accountable for ensuring adherence to this policy and providing appropriate training to their teams.

Compliance with the Policy:

All Nuvias UC employees must familiarise themselves with the policy, understand its implications, and adhere to its provisions. It is the responsibility of every individual associated with our company to report any suspicions or instances of modern slavery promptly. We encourage an open culture where concerns can be raised without fear of reprisal.

Communication and Awareness of the Policy:

Training on the policy and the risks associated with modern slavery is an integral part of our onboarding process for all employees. We also communicate our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery to our suppliers, contractors, and business partners at the commencement of our relationships and reinforce it as necessary.

Breaches of this Policy:

Any breaches of the policy by Nuvias UC employees will result in disciplinary action, which may include dismissal. We reserve the right to terminate relationships with individuals or organisations found to be in violation of this policy.

Review and Amendment:

We commit to regularly reviewing and updating this policy to ensure its effectiveness and relevance. Copies of this statement will be distributed to all employees and prominently displayed across our sites and offices. The next official review of the policy and this statement will be April 2025.

By publishing this statement, Nuvias UC reaffirms its commitment to combatting modern slavery and human trafficking in all its forms. We urge our stakeholders to join us in this critical endeavour to uphold human dignity and promote ethical business practices.
