Modern Slavery Statement
Modern Slavery Statement
Our organisation’s Structure
Lutalica Studio LTD is a design and consultancy agency for feminists and queers based at 5 South Charlotte Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4AN, UK.
We are a provider of design and development services with one design studio in the UK.
Our Supply Chains
Our supply chains mainly comprise contractors providing design and development services ordered by our clients.
Our Policies on 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.
Lutalica Studio LTD operates to ensure fairness in the recruitment, retention and development of all contractors and it seeks to comply with all applicable employment legislation.
Lutalica Studio LTD seeks to provide a work environment where contractors are treated with respect, dignity and consideration.
Lutalica Studio LTD monitors its supply chains and its suppliers to ensure, so far as is possible, that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within those supply chains.
Due diligence process for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our commitment to identify and eradicate slavery and human trafficking from within our business and from those businesses in which we interact, we:
- work closely with our supply chains to ensure compliance with legislative obligations and we expect those organisations to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes;
- we seek to build long-standing relationships with suppliers and to make clear our expectations of ethical business behaviour from them;
- we have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistleblowers.
Supplier Adherence to our Values
Lutalica Studio LTD has a zero-tolerance view of slavery and human trafficking and we expect that view to prevail in our supply chain and contractors.
Senior management at Lutalica Studio LTD is responsible for compliance in their respective departments, insofar as there is perceived to be a risk of encouraging, engaging or sustaining slavery and human trafficking.
To ensure appropriate levels of risk awareness in respect of modern slavery and human trafficking, we will provide training to relevant members of staff and in particular senior managers who will undertake personnel decisions.
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
As has been stated above, we believe that because we carry out one to one recruitment processes for staff and suppliers, with subsequent monitoring of performance and the attainment of regulatory standards, our exposure within our business to human trafficking and slavery is low.
The statement is made pursuant to Section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.
