Modern Slavery Statement

Aruma supports the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and is committed to a program of continuous improvement.

Our Modern Slavery Statement ensures we monitor and take remedial action in respect of any risk of modern slavery in Aruma’s operations and own supply chains.

It outlines our commitment to advancing human rights and sets out the steps we have taken during FY21 and the steps we will seek to take in FY22 to help us:

  • identify and describe risks of modern slavery practices in our operations and supply chains and any entities we own or control;
  • assess and address risks of modern slavery practices, including due diligence and remediation processes, in our operation and any entities that we own or control;
  • assess the effectiveness of actions we take to assess and address modern slavery risks; and
  • consult with any entities we own or control.

Our commitment

Aruma’s Board and Senior Management is committed to achieving the highest standards of ethical behaviour in the conduct of Aruma’s business in Australia. We support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights for all people.

In support of our commitments, Aruma has developed and finalised key documents including our Modern Slavery Policy, Aruma’s Supplier Principles and Procurement Policy. The Procurement Policy requires that due diligence is carried out with all potential new suppliers to assess that they have no slavery or enforced labour in their work forces or supply chains.

We also developed our Supplier Principles that obligates suppliers to not under any circumstances engage in any form of slavery, servitude, human trafficking, forced marriage or deceptive recruiting for labour or services in accordance with Divisions 270 and 271 of the Commonwealth Criminal Code.

Mitigation steps against the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain will include:

a. Distributing our Supplier Principles to prospective and current suppliers

b. Developing a framework for managing due diligence of suppliers for assessing modern slavery risks, and

c. Designing and implementing a pre-qualification questionnaire as part of due diligence framework.
