Modern Slavery can occur in various forms including servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which include the deprivation of a person’s (an adult or child’s) liberty by another (collectively “Modern Slavery”). The following sets out the procedures Panasonic has put in place with the aim of preventing opportunities for Modern Slavery to occur within our business or supply chain.
Panasonic is committed to a work environment that is free from Modern Slavery in accordance with the laws and regulations of the respective countries in which we operate.
We operate a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure Modern Slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains. We will not knowingly use Modern Slavery in any of our products and/or services supplied, nor will we accept commodities, products and/or services from suppliers that we believe to engage in acts of Modern Slavery.
