The CBD Room is committed to operating ethically and responsibly, with a strong focus on human rights and social responsibility. As part of our commitment to combatting modern slavery and human trafficking, we have developed this Modern Slavery Statement to outline our efforts and initiatives in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking have no place in our operations or supply chains.
Our Policies and Values:
- Human Rights Policy: We have established a comprehensive Human Rights Policy that reflects our commitment to upholding and respecting the fundamental human rights of all individuals, including our employees, suppliers, and stakeholders. This policy encompasses principles such as fair treatment, equal opportunities, safe working conditions, and freedom from exploitation.
- Ethical Sourcing Policy: We have implemented an Ethical Sourcing Policy that sets clear guidelines and expectations for our suppliers and partners. This policy requires them to adhere to all applicable laws and regulations related to modern slavery and human trafficking, and to ensure that their operations are free from any form of forced labor or human rights violations.
- Supplier Code of Conduct: We maintain a Supplier Code of Conduct that outlines our expectations regarding labor standards, fair wages, working conditions, and respect for human rights. We actively engage with our suppliers to ensure their understanding and compliance with our code, and we work collaboratively to address any potential risks or concerns.
- Due Diligence and Risk Assessment: We regularly conduct due diligence and risk assessments to identify and address potential risks of modern slavery and human trafficking within our operations and supply chains. We assess our suppliers’ practices, conduct site visits where necessary, and actively monitor for any signs of non-compliance or unethical behavior.
- Employee Training and Awareness: We provide comprehensive training to our employees to raise awareness about modern slavery and human trafficking. This training equips our employees with the knowledge and tools to identify, prevent, and report any potential incidents of modern slavery or human trafficking.
- Reporting and Whistleblowing Mechanisms: We maintain clear reporting and whistleblowing mechanisms that encourage employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders to report any concerns or suspicions related to modern slavery or human trafficking. We take all reports seriously and investigate them promptly, taking appropriate action when necessary.
Review and Continuous Improvement:
We understand that the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking is an ongoing process, and we are committed to continuously improving our practices. To ensure the effectiveness of our initiatives, we regularly review and evaluate our policies, procedures, and supplier relationships. We actively seek feedback from stakeholders and collaborate with industry partners, NGOs, and other organizations to share best practices and drive collective action against modern slavery.
The CBD Room is unwavering in our commitment to combat modern slavery and human trafficking. We are dedicated to maintaining high ethical standards throughout our operations and supply chains, and we will continue to work diligently to prevent, detect, and address any instances of modern slavery or human trafficking.
