Our supply chains
Our supply chain includes the global procurement of components and materials. The breadth and depth of our supply chain makes it challenging to effectively manage supplier compliance. Ultimately, our suppliers are responsible for their own compliance with all applicable laws.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
As part of our commitment towards acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, we are committed to implementing a supplier code of conduct, which will outline our expectations for supplier conduct relating to labour and human rights (including anti-slavery and human trafficking), the environment, ethics, and health and safety.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk EWT is committed to screen new suppliers. Our systems are also being improved to:

  • identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains;
  • monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains; and
  • protect whistle blowers.

Supplier adherence to our values
To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we are improving our suppler contracting systems together with updating our supply chain evaluation and auditing programme.

Training
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, training will be provided to our employees.

Statutory statement
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes EWT’s Group anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2016.
