Modern Slavery Policy

As a Group, DS Smith maintains relationships with many different organisations in its supply chain, as well as directly employing large numbers of people. DS Smith has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery both within the Group and within its supply chain.

We have reviewed our existing compliance and risk management processes following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to determine to what extent measures already exist, and what further measures may be required to prevent slavery and human trafficking taking place in any part of our businesses or in our supply chains. The policy below underpins our approach, and will be used to inform our annual Statement on Slavery and Human Trafficking.
