We have recently published our annual Modern Slavery Statement. This is the second year OjiFS has published a statement and it outlines the actions taken in 2021, including an internal policy review, staff training modules and supplier assessments.
As part of our continuous improvement in this area, earlier this year we also introduced additional training for those involved in facilities management, procurement, human resources, and contract management, with more detail about their role in helping the business identify and manage the risk of modern slavery.
Major companies are increasingly recognising the impacts in their supply chain and managing the risks of unethical and illegal activities – known as environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. In addition, several governments have passed legislation requiring businesses operating in their jurisdictions to manage and report on specific ESG risks. This includes the Australian Commonwealth Modern Slavery Act 2018 (the Act).
Through this Act the Federal Government requires greater transparency and accountability from businesses about how they are managing the risks of modern slavery. This includes publishing an annual Statement to the Australian Government’s public register.
