Modern Slavery Statement
1 July 2021 – 30 June 2022
New Horizons is committed to upholding human rights and acting with integrity.
As an enterprise founded on recognising basic human dignity, New Horizons takes its commitment to counter modern slavery practices seriously. One of the most endemic violations of human rights at a global level, organisations can no longer turn a blind eye to the exploitation of humans for commercial gain.
New Horizons is committed to upholding human rights and acting with integrity for our people and the wider community. This includes our commitment to take action to address the risks of modern slavery within our operations and supply chain and to partner with suppliers who share our values.
While we consider our direct impact in relation to modern slavery practices during the Reporting Period remained low, we continue to focus on developing a strong modern slavery response guided by the principles set out in the United Nations Principles on Business and Human Rights.
In 2022, we issued our second Modern Slavery Statement, which outlines how we continued efforts to combat modern slavery and human trafficking in its operations and supply chains during the Reporting Period.
Our commitment over the coming 12 months is to progress the implementation of our due diligence processes and grievance mechanisms, and we aim to commence the development of processes that assess the effectiveness of our actions. Using the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, we endeavour to implement management processes and controls to integrate our findings, track our progress and to provide effective relief to individuals and communities impacted by modern slavery.
We are proud to play an active role in the fight to end this abuse of human rights.
