Modern Day Slavery Statement

Hexstone Limited (the “Company”) acknowledges the provisions of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, commits to ensuring that modern slavery is not practiced within its operations or supply chain and will ensure transparency within its organisation and supply chain. The Company will not knowingly support or deal with any business involved in slavery or human trafficking.

The Company has implemented policies and procedures to ensure modern slavery does not occur within its operations. The implementation of these policies and procedures are monitored by internal audit.

The company requires suppliers to confirm in writing that that they conform to the requirements of the Act. Suppliers from outside the UK and EU are considered to be potentially more at risk of modern slavery. As part of the Company’s overall supplier management process, these suppliers are audited by Company personnel, this audit specifically includes reviewing for indicators of modern slavery.

Training in identifying evidence of modern slavery is provided to all staff involved in the audit of procedures and suppliers. The level of resource required to perform these audits is regularly reviewed by management.

The Company has not identified any evidence of modern slavery or human trafficking in its own operations in the course of 2022. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, travel restrictions in the Far East have precluded visits to factories and no audits have been completed in 2022. The Company is committed to recommencing audits in 2023.

This policy statement covers the financial year ended 31 st December 2022 and was approved by the Board of Directors on 28th March 2022.
