Holiday Extras has a zero-tolerance policy to modern slavery and human trafficking. We continue to strive to work towards good practice to help ensure that we comply with all laws and regulations applicable to our business. We expect our suppliers and partners to follow the same ethics and have introduced contractual amendments to provide an assurance framework for this.
In line with our values, we strive to know and understand our suppliers as well as sharing our values with them. We have reviewed our existing policies to ensure policies advocate these values and put in place protection to mitigate modern slavery and human trafficking risks. Where we have lacked coherent policies we have, or are in the process of, introducing appropriate ones.
We now have planned measures for due diligence of our suppliers to enable us to get an understanding of ethical and modern slavery risks to our business.
We have started and will continue to work closely with team members, including our commercial procurement, partnerships, customer experience and compliance teams, to help ensure that we understand, identify and assess modern slavery risks within, and to, our business. This is through appropriate internal communications and continuing professional development programmes.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2017.
