Modern slavery is a significant issue for the Australian business community. However, modern slavery is only one aspect of responsible business conduct. The Modern Slavery Act 2018 (the Act) has established Australia’s national Modern Slavery Reporting Requirement (reporting requirement) to report annually on the risks of modern slavery in their operations and supply chains, and actions to address those risks.

The Modern Slavery Report Requirement does not apply to Pronamics Pty Ltd and as such are not required to report under the Act. However, as a supplier to such entities, Pronamics volunteer the following statement:

  • Pronamics are committed to operating our business lawfully and ethically and in only working with suppliers that are aligned to our values.

  • We expect our suppliers to operate in accordance with all applicable modern slavery laws, including those prohibiting human slavery and slavery-like practices, human trafficking and child labour.

  • We value and observe all laws regarding corporate social responsibility, environmental and workplace safety protection and staff inclusion and diversity.

  • We have a relatively simple supply chain that includes the purchase of products and services needed for the businesses day-to-day operations including office supplies, employment and training of staff, external legal advice, IT infrastructure and support services and travel.
  • Pronamics have various policies in place that support our day-to-day operations to ensure all staff and suppliers meet Pronamics’ core values.

    Particular steps we will undertake, include:

    • Assessing the potential modern slavery risks in our operations and supply chains with emphasis on high-risk geographical locations and business transactions
    • Developing and reviewing company policies on modern slavery in operations and supply chains
    • Preparing to conduct due diligence on local and global supply chains
    • Reviewing supplier contracts to ensure they contain terms that are consistent with the Act.
    • Taking steps to address any potential modern slavery risks identified.
