Modern slavery is a crime and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. WGC has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are fully committed to preventing slavery in our branches of our trading activities. As a London based trading company, we recognise this responsibility and have alerted all relevant staff to the risks of slavery in our businesses and across the supply chain. Whenever appropriate, all potential trading partners and suppliers have to declare whether their organization and affiliates have been convicted of any offence involving modern slavery, or whether they are subject to any investigation, inquiry or enforcement proceedings relating to slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour, human trafficking or child labour.
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chain.
To maintain awareness and ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking across our business we have trained all relevant members of staff and our Anti-slavery Statement is available to all staff.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.
