Key performance indicators (KPIs) will be developed and applied to measure our effectiveness of our compliance with the Modern Slavery Act and will include that all supply chain and HR professionals have completed training on modern slavery and a review of existing supply chains whereby the organisation evaluates all existing suppliers takes place.
