Modern Slavery Statement 2021

Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the year ending 31 March 2021

Slavery, servitude, forced labour, human trafficking and modern slavery are issues of increasing global concern, affecting regions and economies. Modern Slavery is fundamentally unacceptable within our business and supply chains and is an important element in our overall approach to business and human rights.

The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’) requires businesses to state the actions they have taken during the financial year to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in their operations and supply chains.

At AO World plc (“AO”) we are fully committed and support the government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking.

We believe that our trade with suppliers across the countries we source from should have a positive impact, creating jobs and opportunities for people in the UK and all over countries which we operate. Since we published our first statement in 2016, we have gained greater insight into risk and trends relating to modern slavery, which has enabled us to strengthen our approach.
