Naviga is committed to limiting the risk of modern slavery occurring within its own business, infiltrating its supply chains or through any other business relationship. While Naviga operates in a sector which is at relatively low risk of slavery, unlawful child labor or human trafficking existing within the business and it considers its main suppliers to be at low risk of engaging in practices of modern slavery and human trafficking, Naviga remains committed to prevent the occurrence of any such practices.
The policy applies to all persons working for or on behalf of Naviga, in any capacity, including employees, directors, officers, contractors, consultants and any other third-party representative.
Naviga expects all who have, or seek to have, a business relationship with Naviga to familiarize themselves with this policy and to act in a way that is consistent with its values.
Naviga will only do business with organizations who fully comply with this policy or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance. This policy does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and Naviga may amend it at any time.
