Modern Slavery Statement
Pet Prescription is a member of the IVC Evidensia group
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery throughout of our business and supply chain is the responsibility of everyone at IVC Evidensia.
Slavery, servitude, forced labour, bonded labour, and human trafficking are issues of increasing global concern, affecting all sectors, regions, and economies. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of human rights and is fundamentally unacceptable. Combatting Modern Slavery is an important element of our overall approach to business and human rights. We are committed to respecting, protecting, and championing the human rights of all those who come into contact with our operations, including employees, supply chain workers, clients and local communities.
We accept our responsibility to support transparency; to find and resolve problems, to regularly review our business practices, and to collaborate with others to protect the rights of workers, particularly those who are most vulnerable to abuse such as modern slavery. IVC Evidensia has expanded rapidly over the last five years. To support this responsibility, we recruited a Legal and Compliance team. One of the key priorities for this year was to complete a Modern Slavery risk assessment to identify any gaps in our operational processes and controls. The findings from our risk assessment will form the basis for our activity in the 2021/22 year.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes IVC Evidensia’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year commencing October 2020 and ending September 2021.
This Statement has been approved by the Board of IVC Evidensia Limited on 1st October 2021
