V.GAN Limited - Modern Slavery Statement for financial year ending in 2022
In accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this statement outlines the steps taken by V.GAN Limited during the financial year ending 30th June 2022 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
V.GAN Limited continues to commit to providing its customers with products that have been made in decent working conditions without exploiting the people who made them.
We work with an established footwear supply base and have built close relationships with all of our suppliers and agents. We understand that our biggest risk to modern slavery is in our own label supply chain where we have undertaken due diligence to minimise this risk. Our shoes are sourced from specialist footwear manufacturers based in Spain, Portugal & China.
V.GAN Limited insists upon a regularly updated modern slavery declaration from its suppliers affirming their commitment to ensuring that the workers producing their goods are fairly treated and work in safe conditions.
At V.GAN, our product team periodically visit our suppliers and factories to ensure the integrity of our supply base by conducting interviews with workers and suppliers.
We are committed to increasing the transparency within our supply chain year upon year & we are committed to tackling and minimising the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within the business and its supply chain.
This statement was approved and signed by our Co-Founder, Derrick Hoyle on the 1st March 2023.
