In December 2022 we were pleased to release our inaugural Modern Slavery Statement since becoming a standalone business in December 2021.
Our Statement reaffirms our commitment to addressing modern slavery risk within our sphere of influence and outlines the ways in which we identify, manage and mitigate modern slavery within our direct business operations, supply chains and investments.
Key actions from the 2022 financial year highlighted in our Statement include:
- developing a modern slavery risk identification framework and action plan;
- establishing a modern slavery working group;
- establishing a partnership with FairSupply to review our Australian share portfolio, with the data used to engage with companies identified as high risk;
- appointing EOS at Federated Hermes to enable active ownership amongst our global investments, including a focus on modern slavery;
- continuing to engage and share learnings with peers through collaborative groups, including the Responsible Investment Association Australasia’s (RIAA) Human Rights
Working Group and Investors Against Slavery and Trafficking APAC (IAST APAC); and
- engaging our people through modern slavery training.
