Encoded Media Policy on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Encoded Media is committed to conducting business transparently, honestly, openly and fairly. We seek to operate responsibly wherever we work in the world and to engage with our stakeholders to manage the social, environmental and ethical impact of our activities in the different markets in which we operate.
It is the policy of Encoded Media and of each director, officer and employee complies in all respects with all applicable UK laws, and (in addition and where relevant) local laws of overseas countries, standards and principles relating to modern slavery in each of the jurisdictions in which a Encoded Media company trades, operates or has any other activity. Encoded Media must establish and enforce effective compliance procedures including in their supply chains.
Due Diligence in Supply Chains
Encoded Media engages with its suppliers through its procurement functions to ensure that an appropriate approach is taken to the management of modern slavery and human trafficking risk within its supply chains. From January 1, 2020, every new contract will include as standard anti-slavery provisions which every supplier is required to comply with. Under these terms and conditions suppliers are subject to formal due diligence processes which include review of compliance with Encoded Media’s Modern Slavery policy.
Suppliers are risk assessed and subject to audit processes proportionate to the perceived risks.
Supplier Risk Assessment
Supplier risks are assessed based on appropriate factors including geographic location, business sector, type of product or service, supply chain structure, business model, business ethics and labour practices. Where risks are considered to be elevated the level of due diligence and auditing is increased appropriately and maintained to ensure compliance with policy.
Encoded Media is committed to respecting fundamental human rights in all its activities. Recruitment processes for direct employees are designed to ensure that no employees are at risk of modern slavery or human trafficking. We do not employ agency staff.
During 202, Encoded Media will train existing and all new employees on identifying the signs and risks of modern slavery and human trafficking and how to manage compliance with this policy statement. Training will be repeated at regular intervals to ensure that knowledge is kept up to date. All employees are encouraged to report any concerns they may have regarding modern slavery and human trafficking either to one of the Directors.
This Statement was approved by the Directors of Encoded Media UK Limited in December, 2019. It covers all the operations of Encoded Media, details of which can be found at www.encodedmedia.com.
