Naked Sprout will continue to assess all our delivery partners for their ethical practices and environmental credentials.
In preparation for publishing our first voluntary statement, Naked Sprout has taken the following steps:
- Informed, and made training available to, all employees about the Modern Slavery Act 2015, types of forced labour, general indicators of modern slavery, and how to report suspected incidents.
- Established processes to ensure new and existing suppliers align with Naked Sprouts commitments to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Naked Sprout will use the following to measure the success and suitability of steps taken;
- Completion of training by employees and following assessment score.
- Completion of supplier assessment by Naked Sprout.
- Instances of non-compliance.
