Modern slavery is a crime and a morally reprehensible act that deprives a person’s liberty and dignity for another person’s gain.
It is a real problem for millions of people around the world, including many in developed countries, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery. Every company is at risk of being involved in this crime through its own operations and its supply chain.
At Print This Print That Ltd / Garment Printing we have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operation and supply chain.
We establish a relationship of trust and integrity with all our suppliers. Our supplier selection and on-boarding procedure include due diligence of the supplier’s reputation, respect for the law, compliance with health, safety and environmental standards, and references, and we also choose to work with SMETA certified suppliers.
