We are committed to doing everything in our power to ensure that public spending on goods and services is not funding modern slavery and human rights abuses. We are placing ever stronger emphasis on social value and modern slavery prevention in designing and developing our commercial agreements. We use appropriate governance and risk management policies and processes to manage compliance and ensure action is taken where necessary.
We support both Trusts on their journey to net zero by working closely with our suppliers, on a national and regional level, to influence factors in our control such as non-renewable material use, manufacture and production methods, logistics, recycling options, disposal and supplier capabilities as part of the procurement exercise.
