Smiths Group and its subsidiary companies are committed to upholding high ethical standards wherever we operate around the world. This commitment includes maintaining all internationally-recognised human rights, such as the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and ensuring our operations and supply chains are free of human trafficking and slavery. It applies whether we are acting through our employees or third parties. We require any individual or entity acting on our behalf to know, understand and abide by the laws and regulations applicable to their conduct. This includes employees, agents, distributors, and other third party representatives. The Smiths Group Anti-Modern Slavery & Transparency Statements set out the steps taken by Smiths Group and its subsidiaries covered by the UK Modern Slavery Act and California Transparency in Supply Chains Act during the year ending 31 July 2020 to address modern slavery trafficking in its business and supply chains.
