Supplier Adherence to Our Values and Due Diligence Processes

JacTravel has a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and expects our suppliers and contractors to uphold the same values. Accordingly, the Company will not conduct business knowingly with anyone engaged in slavery and human trafficking practices or knowingly permit them to be carried out in any part of its business.
To ensure all those in our supply chain comply with our values we have included specific clauses in our contracts with our direct suppliers of hotels rooms. We will also review our agreement with the third party suppliers of hotel rooms and suppliers for group tours and other services.

Training

Training on the Modern Slavery policy and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains forms part of the induction process for all individuals who work for us, and updates will be provided as necessary to existing staff to assist them in identifying and preventing exploitation.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending in October 2016. It is available on the Company’s website and computer shared drive.
