Spartan Solutions Ltd - Modern slavery and human trafficking statement
Introduction from the Chief Operating Officer
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Spartan Solutions slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st March 2019.
Spartan Solutions Ltd (Spartan) is a provider of Enterprise Mobile and Process Automation software and supporting professional services in the equipment rental and industrial services markets.
Our supply chains
As a software company, Spartan does not have an extensive range of local or international suppliers where modern slavery or human trafficking would generally be a material risk and none of our suppliers are key to our businesses success. However, we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place anywhere in our business or supply chains.
Spartan intends to carry out a risk assessment of our tier one suppliers to assess compliance levels.
