Ethical considerations

Magnet Harlequin has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and is committed to ensuring the highest standard of ethical trading, integrity and transparency within its supply chain. This means sourcing products and services in a responsible manner, engaging with suppliers to improve their working practices and providing clear buying processes to ensure that these high standards are maintained.

Magnet Harlequin is committed to implementing effective systems and controls to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within either its own business or in any of its supply chains, consistent with its obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

The Company also expects the same high standards from all its suppliers, contractors and other business partners and, as part of its contracting processes, it includes specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and expects that its suppliers will in turn hold their own suppliers to the same standards.

Our Environmental and Ethical Trading Policy is a core element of our commitment to buy and sell our products responsibly. Magnet Harlequin takes active steps to ensure suppliers comply with our Ethical Trading Policy, which is drawn from the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) and the fundamental conventions of the Internal Labour Organisation (ILO).

In accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, Magnet Harlequin will publish an annual Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement. In order to provide this statement, Magnet Harlequin will require annual certification with this policy from all key suppliers.
