Navarino Services Limited Modern Slavery Statement

 

Introduction

This statement is made in line with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 for the financial year 2018/19.  The Act requires businesses to state the actions they have taken during the financial year to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in their operations and supply chains.  Although Navarino doesn’t legally have to provide this statement (due to the size of the Company) the ethical and moral responsibilities are seen as critical in the day to day operations and supply chain in Navarino and the decision has been made to have this statement to support other processes and documentation regarding Modern Slavery.

Navarino Services Limited has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking.

Our Organisation

Navarino Services Limited is the distribution and representation partner to over 700 independent hotels across Europe.  We provide a full range of distribution technology, alongside superior service and support for our hotel partners.

We have around 35 employees all based in the UK. Our employees are directly employed and are not in any category which is generally seen to be vulnerable to modern slavery in this country, so our focus is to ensure there are policies and procedures in place for our contractors and suppliers.

Our supply chain

Navarino uses a wide range of suppliers who supply goods for sale.

Having reviewed our business operations and relationships, we believe that the area of highest modern slavery risk is in potential supply of software programming code.

Due diligence

Navarino carries out due diligence on suppliers in high-risk areas and this ensures that we only select suppliers who comply with our high standards and policies.

All suppliers which we class as high risk must:

  • Complete a Modern Slavery Act Due Diligence questionnaire which covers their governance, policies, training and supply chains management processes; and
  • Provide a full and complete list of all sites they are proposing to commission goods from on behalf of Navarino on an annual basis.

All high risk suppliers must then complete a questionnaire to ensure ethical standards and full transparency is maintained.

Should a supplier fail or refuse to provide the information required or meet Navarino’s expectations, this may result in Navarino not entering into a relationship with them or terminating any current relationship.

Policies

Navarino has a Whistleblowing Policy which encourages employees to report any concerns including any related to modern slavery/trafficking and child and forced labour.

Training

During the year, training will be provided to those teams who have direct responsibility for relevant supply chain management.

Looking ahead

We will continue to review our modern slavery statement annually and continually identify any potential risk with suppliers.

Approval

This statement has been approved by the Chief Executive Officer of Navarino Services Limited.
