UCL is committed to acquiring goods and services for its use without causing harm to others. We follow the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Base Code of the Ethical Trading Initiative to ensure that the following applies to the people who work for us and for our suppliers:
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. Preliminary work is under way to develop an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. This will reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, and to implement and enforce systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains.
We are using the Net Positive Supplier Engagement Tool to find out the actions our suppliers are taking to understand and address these issues. Find out more about the Net Positive tool here.
