Our Policies on Modern Slavery
The Luxury Travel Holding Group is committed to ensuring that high standards are maintained throughout our supply chain to ensure that we are not engaged in or complicit in exploitation of people whether through forced labour, servitude, child labour or trafficking.
Due Diligence Processes and Risk Assessment
Our compliance with the standards set out in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 will be the responsibility of the Product Team, led by the Product Director.
In order to tackle the risks of our unwittingly being involved in Modern Slavery or trafficking, we have agreed to apply the following policies to maximize transparency in our supply chain:
- We plan to incorporate a section dedicated to Modern Slavery in our personnel guide to conducting “familiarisation trips” so that employees visiting properties are aware of the risks, the need to look out for warning signs and what these warning signs might be.
- We will include a section in our Supplier Service Agreements setting out the standards to which we expect suppliers to adhere in respect of Modern Slavery.
Given the breadth of suppliers and the relatively low volumes of business generated with each, transparency is currently limited. Nonetheless, our commitment to first-hand knowledge of the destinations we feature enables us to have a degree of visibility of warning signs of working practices in our supply chain on a regular basis, although it should be noted that this visibility may be at a somewhat superficial level.
Our compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and success in implementing these policies will be reviewed annually by the Management Team and Board of Directors at a Board Meeting.
Training will be provided to all Product Managers to ensure they understand our policy and how to identify warning signs. We will also include information in our FAM brief for all staff that are traveling within our supply chain so that they are aware of the risks and know to be aware of the warning signs and what these might be.
This statement constitutes The Luxury Travel Holdings Limited Modern Slavery statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2019.
