Modern Slavery Act Transparency Statement
This statement sets out the steps Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC (“Euromoney”) has taken to comply with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”).
Euromoney is a global information business providing essential B2B information to global and specialist markets. Euromoney provides price discovery, market intelligence and events across our segments.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains are many and varied. We considered each of our business operations and their supply chains and determined the following areas as our inherent or perceived supply chain risk:
- event construction and operation in non-EU / non-US countries
- contracted maintenance staff working in the company’s offices in all locations (e.g. cleaning, catering, security, building services)
- outsourced operations located in developing countries including software developers, data and list researchers, and sales and customer service
Our policies on modern slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
We require appropriate right-to-work documentation for staff including temps, interns and placement staff.
We have a supply chain review framework to identify suppliers where slavery or trafficking risk may be high and our expectations of how business is conducted are communicated to such suppliers, together with legal undertakings where appropriate.
In order to monitor compliance:
- each divisional head attests in writing that they have reviewed their division’s supply chain and that they have taken the necessary steps to mitigate exposure to the risk of modern slavery
- the Risk Committee reviews and approves Euromoney’s anti-slavery policies and procedures with the annual statement signed off by the Board
- the Company’s internal audit function reviews compliance by the businesses with Euromoney’s anti-slavery policies and procedures
All Euromoney divisions have access to the Company’s speak-up hotline, managed by an independent third-party, allowing employees and others worldwide to report confidentially any suspected illegal or unethical behaviour.
We will continue to review and update our compliance approach as our businesses and inherent or perceived supplier risks change over time.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Euromoney’s modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 September 2019.
