We have an Anti-Slavery Policy which is available to all employees. The policy ensures that our employees understand their responsibility for prevention, detection and reporting of slavery and human trafficking within our own business and within our supply chain. We require our staff to comply with this policy and to promote our zero-tolerance approach toslavery and human trafficking to suppliers. Sabio has, during the course of the last financial year, delivered appropriate training to its employees to ensure awareness of modern slavery. © SabioGroup All Rights Reserved 2
In order to identify and mitigate risk we:

- monitor information about suppliers in the public domain;
- seek where reasonably possible to require suppliers to comply with all applicable laws
(which would include the Modern Slavery Act 2015); and
- endeavour to include specific anti-slavery clauses in contracts with strategic new suppliers.
Effectiveness of anti-slavery measures
The effectiveness of our anti-slavery measures is kept under review. We are committed to reviewing the measures taken each year and to implementing any necessary improvements identified. This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Sabio’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 September 2017.
