Statement by the directors of House of Computers Ltd

As a company who actively ensures our supply chain is ethical, we are committed to ensuring that there is no human trafficking or modern slavery in any part of our business.

As a limited company in the UK e-commerce sector, we work closely with a diverse range of suppliers, both in the UK and across the world. We understand and recognise the responsibility we have in promoting ethical business practices.

Policies

As part of our commitment to prevent modern slavery, we have implemented an Anti-Slavery Policy. This influences all of our operational procedures within our company. We also make sure our suppliers are fully aware of our policies.

Our Anti-Slavery Policy is reflective of our promise to work ethically and with integrity within all our business relationships.

Due diligence

As part of our efforts to monitor and mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we have adopted due diligence procedures designed to:

  • Identify and analyse areas of possible risk in our supply networks and businesses
  • Keep an eye on potential danger areas in our supply chains and businesses
  • Lower the danger of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and businesses
  • Whistleblowers should be well protected.

Risk and compliance

We conduct audits on a regular basis to assess the degree and scope of our exposure to the risk of modern slavery in our supply chains.

We do not consider ourselves to be in high-risk industries or regions. However, we recognise that slavery and human trafficking are always a possibility, so we will do risk assessments on our supply chains on a regular basis.

Slavery and human trafficking will not be tolerated in our supply chains, and if such practises are discovered, the directors of House of Computers Ltd are committed to taking necessary action.

Further actions and sign-off

This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes House of Computers Ltd's slavery and human trafficking statement for the 2020/21 financial year.
