Modern Slavery Policy

Introduction

At Beings, we are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in all our business operations. We recognise that modern slavery, in its various forms, is a global issue that requires collective action. This policy outlines our commitment to preventing and addressing modern slavery within our own operations and supply chains.

This policy applies to all activities undertaken by Beings, including but not limited to:

  • The development and maintenance of the Beings website and associated platforms.
  • The procurement of goods and services.

  • Providing training and support to our employees to help them identify and report any concerns related to modern slavery.

  • Conducting audits and site visits.
  • Monitoring suppliers’ performance and taking appropriate action in case of non-compliance.
