Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is one of the most complex and important human rights challenges of our time. 

According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), the term ‘modern slavery’ covers a set of legal concepts, including forced labour, debt bondage, and human tracking. It’s an umbrella term that refers to situations of exploitation where an individual can’t refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, or abuse of power.

Slavery and human trafficking are abhorrent violations of human rights, and we’re dedicated to ensuring that our business activities don’t support such practices. We, Corp and our subsidiaries (t/a, are committed to combating slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain. 

It will take commitment, resources and innovative solutions from governments, international organisations, the private sector, and civil society to prevent modern slavery from impacting so many. At, we appreciate the unique responsibility of the private sector in these efforts and are committed to understanding and addressing any modern slavery risks that may arise in the course of our business.

Our company does not tolerate modern slavery, so we’ve put steps in place to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our own business and supply chains.

Supply Chain Management

As a technology company, our most significant risks in relation to modern slavery, relate to our supply chain. So we’re focussed on working with long-term, strategic partners who demonstrate the same commitment to socially and environmentally sustainable procurement as us, to ensure modern slavery plays no part in their business.

We contract with a developer network to assist with certain aspects of software development, as well engaging with professional and business support service providers. These networks are multi-jurisdictional and each developer goes through technical and suitability assessments before we contract with them. 

We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly review our existing suppliers. The Company’s due diligence and risk mitigation process includes:

  • Seek to work with only the best and most reputable individuals and businesses in their industry or field
  • Carry out background checks on new suppliers to establish their reputation and do our best to know who we’re working with
  • Build long-standing relationships with our most reputable suppliers and making clear our expectations of all new business partners 
  • Evaluate the modern slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier
  • Contract our suppliers on standard terms that allow us to enforce uniform standards across the business
  • Invoke sanctions and penalties against suppliers who fail to meet performance criteria or conduct standards, including the termination of the business relationship.


The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us, partnering with us, and servicing us. Builder’s employees, partners and vendors are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy and our commitment.
