Last Updated: 18 September 2023
Rachel Rabbit White is committed to ethical practices, sustainability, and social responsibility. As part of our dedication to these principles, we recognize the importance of combating modern slavery and human trafficking in all its forms. This Modern Slavery Statement outlines our efforts to ensure that slavery and human trafficking do not occur in any part of our operations or supply chains.
Rachel Rabbit White is a leading online platform in the niche of flowers, gardening, and the natural world. While we do not engage in manufacturing or production, we understand the responsibility we have in ensuring that our suppliers and partners uphold ethical standards.
Our Supply Chains
Our supply chains primarily involve the sourcing of products related to flowers, gardening, and nature-inspired products. We work with a diverse range of suppliers and partners to provide our readers and customers with high-quality products.
We are committed to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking within our sphere of influence. This commitment includes:
- Supplier Due Diligence: We conduct due diligence on suppliers and partners to assess their compliance with anti-slavery and human trafficking laws. We prioritize working with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical practices.
- Contractual Agreements: We include anti-slavery and human trafficking clauses in our contracts with suppliers, explicitly prohibiting any form of forced labor or exploitation.
- Employee Training: We provide training to our employees who are involved in procurement and supply chain management to raise awareness of modern slavery issues and to help identify and address any concerns.
- Whistleblower Policy: We have established a whistleblower policy that allows employees and stakeholders to report any concerns or suspicions of modern slavery anonymously. Reports will be thoroughly investigated, and appropriate action will be taken.
Our Actions in 2022
In 2022, we have taken the following specific actions to combat modern slavery:
- Conducted a review of our existing suppliers and partners to ensure compliance with our anti-slavery and human trafficking standards.
- Strengthened our contracts and agreements with suppliers to include more robust anti-slavery clauses.
- Provided additional training to our employees involved in supply chain management and procurement.
In the coming year, we will continue to build upon our efforts to combat modern slavery. Our future commitments include:
- Expanding our supplier audits and assessments to ensure ongoing compliance with ethical standards.
- Raising awareness among our employees and stakeholders about the importance of addressing modern slavery and human trafficking.
- Further enhancing our whistleblower policy to provide clear guidelines for reporting and investigating potential violations.
At Rachel Rabbit White, we are committed to conducting our business ethically and with integrity. We will continue to work diligently to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking have no place in our operations or supply chains.
This Modern Slavery Statement will be reviewed and updated annually to reflect our ongoing commitment to combat modern slavery and human trafficking.
