Paperchase and the Modern Slavery Act Statement 2016-2017

This statement is made according to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Here at Paperchase, we recognise that Modern Slavery includes slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. We’re committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings, and to setting up effective systems that safeguard against any form of modern slavery within our business and supply chain.

We’re also committed to making sure our suppliers meet the highest standards of ethics and demonstrate fair working conditions. All suppliers must sign our Code of Practice, which highlights our intolerance of the use of child labour or exploitation of any other vulnerable group. They must confirm that wages and working conditions are comparable to local norms and comply with all local laws. We outline that we may end the contract at any time we become aware of any instances of modern slavery.

This statement was approved by our Board of Directors July 2017.

Chief Executive
