CCL is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking wihtin its business and its supply chains. We continually strive to improve our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
We are a retailer of high performance technology products, selling market leading products to customers in the UK, with some sales worldwide. We sell to consumers, businesses and public bodies. We are based in Bradford in the UK. We are part of the Tactus Group (Group), a leading technology business. Our ultimate parent company is Tactus Holdings Limited. Tactus Holdings Limited has its head office in the UK. The Group has over 140 employees and at the time of this statement does not have any entities overseas. CCL itself has around 70 employees.
Our supply chains include buying products directly from manufacturers and from distributors. These are primarily based in the UK and EU, but some are based overseas.
We are commited to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Group Anti-Slavery Policy and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment 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 is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occuring in our supply chains, particularly those based in higher risk locations. We require these suppliers to comply with the Group Anti-Slavery Policy and Human Trafficking Policy.
In relation to our own workforce, we employ robust recruitment procedures including a "right to work" document check and ensuring everyone employed is 16 years or over. We have specific provisions for under 18 year olds. All of our employees have written contracts of employment.
Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken this year to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains we intend to continue to focus on improving the due diligence we undertake on our supply chain and strengthen the contractual obligations we place on them.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2021. It was approved by the board on 15 September 2021
