MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT for the year ending 31st December 2017
This statement is made by the UK operations of Condé Nast International Limited pursuant to section 54(6) of the UK’s Modern Slavery Act 2015 (‘The Act’) for the financial year ending on 31st December 2017.
For over 100 years, Condé Nast International has set the standard for engaging, visually arresting, innovative publishing, creating the very finest magazine brands in the world. Condé Nast international currently operates in 29 markets, publishing 134 magazines and more than 100 websites, under such esteemed brands as Vogue, GQ, Glamour, Wired, Condé Nast Traveller, AD and Vanity Fair.
This statement is written to cover both the UK operations of Condé Nast International Limited (CNI) and Condé Nast Britain (CNB), both of which are subject to the provisions of The Act.
We pride ourselves in respecting the individual no matter what gender, race, religion or orientation. We are committed to doing business in an ethical way, with honesty, integrity and humanity and we expect the same from our suppliers and their supply chains.
We at CNI and CNB take our social responsibility extremely seriously and have a Code of Ethical Responsibility, emphasising how we work and recognising our commitment to obeying the laws in all areas in all countries in which we operate.
CNI and CNB have a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking of any kind in our operations and supply chain and will take seriously any allegations that human rights are not properly respected.
During 2017 we have undertaken an assessment of the main areas of risk and have identified that while we control our approach internally we have not had full visibility of risks in our supply chain.
Policies to address Modern Slavery internally have been drafted but not yet published to staff
We procure services and goods from a wide range of providers, including freelance editorial suppliers, large and small technology suppliers, print and logistic suppliers as well as other professional services.
We have established a Procurement Department who will have responsibility for identifying and mitigating any issues in the supply chain relating to The Act, going forward.
This statement has been approved by the board of Condé Nast Britain. A new statement will be published each year on the website.
