The Modern Slavery Act was introduced in 2015 to cover slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. NFU Mutual is committed to acting with integrity in all areas of business and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain. This is NFU Mutual’s slavery and human trafficking statement for financial year 2016.
NFU Mutual is a financial services group offering a wide range of personal, business and farming insurance, investment and financial services. The business is UK-based with over 3500 employees and a business turnover over c. £1,300m. Our supply chain is predominantly UK based and is managed centrally by a team of procurement and vendor management specialists.
The nature of the financial services industry and the fact that NFU Mutual operate within the UK, limits the direct exposure towards forms of slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.
However, NFU Mutual is not complacent and expects and requires that its employees and each of its suppliers conduct business with integrity and in a lawful manner and we have a number of policies and procedures which demonstrate our approach to modern slavery issues:
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes NFU Mutual's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing 1 January 2016 and ending 31 December 2016.
