Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that the Consilient Health has taken to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of the services we provide, or our supply chain.
Established in 2005, Consilient Health are a medium sized pharmaceutical company with a rich heritage of commercialising products in complex markets and in therapeutic areas such as women’s health, urology and endocrinology.
Our commitment to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensure that no forms of modern slavery or human trafficking occur in any part of our business or supply chains.
We undertake all reasonable and practical steps to ensure that our standards are implemented and that local legislation and regulations are being complied with, both throughout our business, and within our direct supply chain.
We will strive to only work with those parties who fully comply with these standards and will deal with issues of non-compliance on a case by case basis.
Consilient Health has a range of policies, procedures, and contractual requirements in place which already contribute towards the prevention of slavery and human trafficking within our organisations or supply chains. These include but are not limited to:
- Robust Disciplinary and Grievance policies
- Equal Opportunities and Dignity at work Policy
- Clear recruitment procedures, and systems in place to encourage all staff to report concerns internally (with the protection of the Company’s Whistleblowing Policy);
- Longstanding relationships with external suppliers, where possible, to ensure commitment to our expectations of business behaviour;
- Engagement of external providers and suppliers which have their own policies and procedures aimed at preventing modern slavery and human trafficking.
Enforcing this policy
The policy has been circulated throughout the company, and it is the responsibility of all employees to uphold. We encourage all employees to be vigilant and report any suspicions of any acts or behaviours which may contradict this statement to their Manager.
As part of the company’s on-going development we may also review or reconsider additional policies, procedures or requirements if appropriate to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking taking place in our business or in our supply chains.
We will not support or knowingly do business with a company involved in slavery or human trafficking. Any employee who fails to comply with this statement will face disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.
This statement will be reviewed and updated as appropriate and at least annually.
