Fourth Modern Slavery Act Statement


1.1. This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Fourth Limited (“Fourth”) has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

1.2. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Despite being a low-risk business, Fourth has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

4.2.1 They have taken steps to ensure that they comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015;

5.1 Fourth’s Modern Slavery Act Policy will be circulated to all members of staff. The Modern Slavery Act Policy lists the signs of modern slavery and explains to employees what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.


6.1 In order to monitor the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to stop slavery and trafficking taking place in our business and supply chains, we intend to use the following performance indicators for the year ahead:

6.1.1 We will issue and publish our Modern Slavery Act Policy to our workforce, setting out our stance in relation to modern slavery.

6.1.2 We will send this Statement to our suppliers, setting out our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and require them to confirm that they will adhere to the principles set out in the Statement.
