Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and Part 2 of the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018 requires organisations operating within the UK and Australia to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement each year. IDIS is a people-centric company that has nurtured a strong ethical culture over nearly 25 years, based on the principles and ethics of our CEO and founding partners, and strong direction of our current management team. IDIS has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all our business dealings. We put effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within our business or supply chain. Our commitment to human rights means we have adopted the principles of the leading international standards and conventions across our business, in particular the UN Global Compact, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the UN Conventions on Rights of the Child, and understand our responsibility to respect and support human rights. This ensures the human rights of our employees are covered by our people policies and compliance with local labour laws wherever we do business.

The company management ensures that business is conducted in an ethical way and in accordance with the code of conduct and the company’s policies are continually reviewed. We annually update our risk assessment to identify potential modern slavery and human trafficking risk the company is likely to encounter such as entry into new markets, new regulations, and any changes in our supply chain.
All employees are regularly provided with guidance on all aspects of our code of conduct, including modern slavery. IDIS business leaders will continue to ensure that the company is committed to upholding its values and providing a safe and fair working environment for all its employees.
