Oxfam GB Statement on Modern Slavery for the financial year 2016/17
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires organizations with a turnover of at least £36m to make a public statement on steps they are taking to identify and prevent modern slavery in their operations and supply chain. Oxfam GB advocated for this policy development, and this statement relates to steps taken in relation to our own operations and supply chain. Our first statement gave detailed information about our policies and processes in order to demonstrate transparency on this challenging issue and to encourage other companies to be transparent. This 2017 statement is an update on progress against the commitments made in our first statement and shares two case studies of how we work.
