Anti Slavery Policy
The purpose of this policy is to set out our responsibilities, and of those working for and on our behalf, in observing and upholding our position on modern slavery and human trafficking; and provide information to those working for and on our behalf on how to identify and report concerns regarding modern slavery and human trafficking.
The intention and spirit of this policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners. We shall go to every reasonable length to ensure the third parties we work with adopt and follow the same Anti-Slavery values as The Conte Club. We may terminate our relationship with other individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they breach this policy or the spirit of the responsibilities it seeks to uphold.
This policy does not form part of any employee's contract of employment and we may amend it at any time.
At The Conte Club we are deeply committed to ensuring that we operate an ethical and responsible approach to the places our guests travel and the business partnerships we engage. We believe that when our guests travel around the world that they should give to, not take from, the places they visit in order to have a positive effect on the people and cultures of those destinations. We are committed to taking steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking does not occur within the course of our business or in the operations of our partners in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Furthermore we are committed to being ambassadors of supporting and upholding human rights throughout our company and global network.
Ensuring a like-minded and responsible network
We are committed to ensuring that our global network of partners are making their own commitment to ethical and responsible policy making to ensure the tenants of Modern Slavery Policies also run through their own operations. We work with suppliers of: luxury travel accommodations, travel experiences, transport (including yachts and private, commercial airlines), private guides and local businesses around the world and ensure we undertake clear due diligence to audit our travel partners commitment to the same working ethos and values as described herein.
We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners and, as part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
Company Wide Commitment
We communicate to our staff, suppliers and other businesses why it is vital for companies to take steps to eliminate slavery from their supply chains. We are transparent and proud in our support and commitment to the Modern Slavery Act for all of our employees and have established internal practices and put procedures in place for any employee who wishes to raise or discuss any concerns they have regarding the issues covered by our Modern Slavery Policy statement.
Measuring our Due Diligence
In order to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains we have used 3 key indicators to help us be accountable and transparent in our practice.
the number of partnership proposals we have declined based on a lack of policy on this issue, or an unwillingness to implement one.
the number of our employees trained on human rights, modern slavery and human trafficking;
the number of supplier audits carried out.
