Modern Slavery Statement
CAS is fully committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships. This includes zero-tolerance of modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our business and supply chain.
We are wholly based in the UK, with no supply chains overseas. Our suppliers comprise mainly UK-based professional services or third-party IT providers.
We maintain full transparency in our employment and other business practices, with published policies that are audited as part of our ISO 9001 quality management accreditation. We are also an accredited Living Wage supplier – we ensure anyone working for us, including third party suppliers, are paid a fair, living wage.
Our Modern Slavery Policy
We are committed to ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
All staff have a duty to avoid any activity that might lead to a breach of this policy. We will carry out training to ensure they understand the issues and how to ensure compliance. Staff are encouraged to raise any concerns at the earliest possible stage. We have a Whistleblowing policy based on the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 to ensure staff feel comfortable raising concerns.
The CAS Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring compliance, with support from our Legal and Human Resources teams.
Supplier Code of Conduct
We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review. We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties. Where appropriate, we will require suppliers to provide written confirmation that they are not involved in modern slavery or human trafficking.
