Communicate (Europe) Limited
(the “Company”) 
 
Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

INTRODUCTION 
 
While as an SME we have no binding obligation to publish a statement we believe that our clients and suppliers appreciate our position and consideration.
 
Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Our employees are alert to the risks and are expected to report their concerns, and management are expected to act upon them.
 
ORGANISATION’S STRUCTURE 
 
Communicate (Europe) Limited, known as Communicate , is an independent creative services company. The head office is based in Leeds, West Yorkshire 
The Company is owned and operated by its shareholders who are private individuals and it is a Small to Medium Sized Enterprise (SME). 

OUR BUSINESS 
 
The principal activity of our business is publishing, design, content marketing and digital development. 

OUR SUPPLY CHAINS 
 
Our supply chains include development communities overseas who are visited regularly and audited by the business. We know our partners and count them as valuable team members.
 
OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING 
 
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
 
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING 
 
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we: 

-Build long-standing relationships with suppliers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour;

-Have a policy of “knowing our customer” to ensure that we are contracting with appropriate businesses;
 
-With regards to national or international supply chains, we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes. We expect each entity in the supply chain to, at least, adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain.

-We encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES AND ETHICS

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and sub-contractors to comply with our values.

TRAINING

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide briefings to our Directors.
