Our Business Model
Xamax Clothing Company Ltd are a family owned business, and are absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operations. This document outlines the procedures we undertake to understand, reduce and remove the risks of such practices occurring by:
1. Understanding potential modern slavery risks related to our business
2. Tackling slavery and human trafficking in our business and our supply chains
Our Supply Chain
Our supply chain includes a wide range of brands from whom we source Industrial Workwear, Corporate Clothing and Personal Protective Equipment. These items are for supply to all sectors of business to promote their brand and keep their employees safe.
Our entire supply chain needs to have a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking. We expect our suppliers to demonstrate they use labour ethically and within the law. Where they cannot demonstrate this standard, we will look to end the business relationship.
Xamax Clothing Company Ltd have procedures in place to identify modern slavery risks and prevent slavery and human trafficking in our operations:
Whistleblowing: We encourage all staff and business partners to report any concerns they have about our activities and supply chains.
Business ethics: We expect our suppliers to manage their own employees and supply chains and we aim to uphold the highest standards of our own employee conduct and ethical behaviour.
Due Diligence & Supply Chain Management
We have the following due diligence processes in place to ensure we are tackling slavery and human trafficking risks in our business and supply chains:
1. We regularly review our existing suppliers’ policies on modern slavery and other areas of their operations as part of our working partnerships.
2. With Xamax Clothing Company Ltd not being a manufacturer of products, we place particular reliance on our suppliers and favour those who work closely with trade bodies such as SEDEX (Supply Ethical Data Exchange), WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) and Fairwear Foundation. Of the supplier brands that are members, these trade bodies are responsible for auditing the brands’ supply chains.
3. All supplier brands are expected to provide us with an official Ethical Trading Statement, which our customers can be provided with on request.
4. We feel it is important to conduct reviews with key suppliers regularly to understand the level of communication and personal contact with the next link in the supply chain. We assess their understanding of, and compliance with, our expectations of ethical business behaviour.
5. We will assess any instances of non-compliance with the relevant provider on a case-by-case basis and compile any remedial action appropriately.
