Modern Slavery Statement

Aruma supports the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and is committed to a program of continuous improvement by ensuring we monitor, and take remedial action, in respect of any risk of modern slavery in Aruma’s operations and own supply chains.

Our Statement is submitted pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) (MSA) for the reporting period 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020.

It outlines our commitment to advancing human rights and the steps we are taking to prevent modern slavery in our operations and supply chains.

Here is a summary of some important aspects of the Modern Slavery Statement:

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 policies including a Modern Slavery Policy 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. Review of the supply chains across the companies

b. Review of the tender process (including contracts)

c. Review of our supply contacts, and

d. identifying key categories of products and services that we procure with a higher propensity for modern slavery risk
