Modern Slavery & Human
Trafficking Statement for INVENTI SYSTEMS LTD.
INVENTI SYSTEMS and its group of
supporting partners are committed to preventing modern slavery and human
trafficking in any part of our business or supply chain. It is absolutely the
right thing to do and
we aim to take sustained and
concerted action against such acts.
Organisation’s structure and
INVENTI SYSTEMS LTD is a private limited company,
recently formalised and has only one director with currently no employees. We are
based in South Wales and have a satellite office in London.
Our supply chains
Our supply chain includes large
multinational organisations, publicly owned bodies as well as a range of small
and medium sized suppliers providing goods, services and works for our business.
To ensure all suppliers within
our extended supply chain comply with our values, we have in place a Supply
Chain Charter. This reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with
integrity in all our business
relationships, and to implementing and enforcing appropriate systems and
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 Supply Chain Charter sets out our expectations from
the supply chain
to prevent modern slavery and
human trafficking. In addition, our Speak-Up policy provides a reporting method
for our staff and others to alert us to any concerns they may have. This
provides a second line of defence to
assuring our compliance with modern slavery, which is managed by our Compliance
team, currently, the business owner.
Due diligence processes for
slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to
identify and mitigate risk, we have undertaken a high-level due diligence exercise
on our direct suppliers, requiring them to self-certify their compliance with
modern slavery and human trafficking legislation. We aim to implement further
risk-based assessments, as set out below.
We have historically provided
training to key staff on modern slavery risks, however, are looking to implement
a more robust training programme, as set out below. Our Commercial teams will
engage with other public sector bodies to discuss developments, updates and
best practice on a periodic basis.
Following a review of the
effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no modern slavery
or human trafficking in our supply chains, we intend to take the following
further steps to combat against modern slavery and human trafficking: –
• In line with Government guidance we are rolling out the Government
Modern Slavery Assessment Tool to assess the risk of modern slavery when we
commence a procurement. The results will be
built into our management
• High risk procurements will be subject to additional modern slavery
questions as part of our social value policy outcomes;
• We will roll-out modern slavery awareness training to our Commercial
department to ensure those responsible for awarding contracts are aware of
modern slavery risks ;
• We will issue all our existing tier one suppliers with a letter to remind
them of their compliance responsibilities in the prevention of modern slavery
and human trafficking;
• We will require all our subsidiaries to make annual modern slavery and
human trafficking statements;
• We will develop a new Modern Slavery Policy detailing our approach to
managing modern slavery and human trafficking risk; and • We are reviewing our relevant policies, including the Supply Chain
Charter and Speak Up Policy to ensure they remain fit for purpose.
This statement is made pursuant to
section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our
modern slavery and human
trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2021.
