Modern Slavery Policy

Modern Slavery Act

The Act requires businesses to disclose policies, plans and actions to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in supply chains. The disclosures are intended to enable customers to make informed choices about the products and services they buy and companies they support.

Agriconnect is committed to maintaining and improving its supplier policies and processes to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business or within our supply chains.

Our business

Agriconnect publishes a variety of print and digital B2B content and organises conferences and events to serve its target market.

In doing so, it relies on suppliers, who are scattered around the world. Key suppliers are those providing IT platforms to enable us to deliver our digital services, some of whom operate in countries in which the risk of forced labour is significantly greater than in the UK. It also organises events in various parts of the world which are dependent on third party providers of venues and facilities, each of which are further key suppliers. Their everyday operations are not necessarily conducted according to the moral and legal standards prevalent in the UK. This necessitates careful evaluation of such suppliers, which Agriconnect undertakes.

Supply Chain verification

Agriconnect undertakes informal supplier selection procedures across all of its activities. These policies and procedures include risk assessments with reference to slavery and human trafficking. A key element of our supplier selection is to ensure that rigorous and effective anti-slavery and human trafficking warranties and undertakings are in place throughout our contracts with third party suppliers.

Supplier Certification

Serious violations of our terms and conditions would lead to the termination of the business relationship Agriconnect enjoys with a supplier.

Internal Accountability

Our internal accountability standards and procedures help us to ensure that all our employees conduct business in an ethical manner. Agriconnect requires its staff to comply with the laws of the countries in which we operate and with all Agriconnect policies, including employee handbooks and standard operating procedures. Infringement of the law or company policies is subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of the employment contract.

Training

At Agriconnect, we believe that training is an important part of effective human rights practices. We have instituted a programme of training sessions for key staff on human trafficking and slavery, particularly on mitigating risks within supply chains.

Awareness Raising

Agriconnect invests in educating its staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Awareness of modern slavery issues is being communicated to staff both face-to-face and electronically.

Our employees are encouraged to identify, prevent and if necessary report potential slavery or human trafficking issues.

Board approval
This statement has been approved by the Board of Directors.

 


Sustainability Policy

Sustainability policy

A responsible approach to the environment is essential to ensure the future sustainability of our business and the role that we play in the communities that we serve.
Our view is that care for the environment goes hand in hand with our work as a media business. We continually develop and revise our sustainability approach to satisfy our ambitions, and encourage and empower everyone who works at Agriconnect to be aware of how the work we do affects wider society.
We co-operate with our suppliers to reduce our environmental impact wherever possible.
It is important that our suppliers comply with our core principles, including that employment is freely chosen, that working conditions are safe, that child labour is never used, and no discrimination is practised. Where possible, we will choose a supplier that has environmental accreditation.

Definition
Agriconnect follows the Brundtland report’s definition that sustainable development is ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’ (Brundtland Report for the World Commission on Environment and Development 1992) and we are conscious of the environmental impact of our activities.

Scope and Objective
This policy explains Agriconnect’s approach to sustainability and clearly communicates this to our employees, readers, clients, and partners.

Printing and paper
Our print suppliers actively work towards reducing their carbon footprint and environmental impact. They only use soya-based inks and recycled, FSC or PEFC-compliant paper, and 98.5% of all waste is recycled.
Our printers possess ISO14001, ISO9001, PEFC, and FSC accreditation. They are members of the Paperpak scheme and have invested in the Cutstar system to reduce paper wastage.
100% of the paper we use was sourced from either recycled fibre or sustainable forests where at least one tree is planted for every tree felled.
We are looking at ways in which we can replace the plastic film we use to wrap our magazines with an environmentally-friendly alternative.

Events
We have a separate sustainability policy for our event activities, see our corporate website.

Our offices
We are reducing our carbon emissions through a focus on:
Improving the energy efficiency of our buildings and IT, consolidating our office space, and increasing the proportion of renewable electricity we purchase.
Our air-conditioning system is programmed so that it does not run outside normal working hours (7pm to 7am weekdays, and all day on Saturdays and Sundays) to reduce energy consumption.
Our lighting-control software switches the lights off outside normal working hours unless triggered by movement sensors. When triggered, only the bank of lights controlled by the movement sensor will switch on.
We are reducing unnecessary business travel and use audio and videoconferencing to replace face-to-face meetings where possible.
We are actively limiting our use of paper in the office by reducing the amount of photocopying and printing, and only use recycled paper for photocopying, business correspondence and marketing.
We are working to ensure the maximum amount of our office waste is recycled and none of the remainder is sent to landfill.
We have replaced single-use plastic cups with reusable glass cups and have issued our staff with reusable coffee cups and water bottles to reduce wastage.

Supplier audits
We undertake environmental and ethical audits of our main suppliers, which include aspects such as the processing and disposal of effluents, emissions and waste materials, and the use of labour.

Carbon footprint
We are working towards reducing our carbon footprint over the next three years, and to deliver carbon offsetting to cover the footprint of our office activity and events.

Sustainability
We have established a sustainability committee, and their mission is to hold the business to account in terms of our environmental commitments.
