Modern Slavery Statement 2023

Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the year ending 31 March 2023

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.

This is our eighth statement on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking and is made in accordance with Section 54(6) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and covers AO World PLC and its UK (United Kingdom) incorporated subsidiaries.

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. 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.
