Modern Slavery Statement
Katharine Bryant

Business Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can affect the level of risk and how exposed a company is to modern slavery. Companies can provide information in their statements on their existing business KPIs and explain if they have considered whether these KPIs make their business and supply chain more (or less) vulnerable to modern slavery.

For further information on Business Performance Indicators please refer to Home Office Guidance, pp. 36.


Does the company disclose existing business KPIs that may increase their exposure to the risk of modern slavery?

Examples of these business KPIs include:

  • turn-around time,
  • the cost of materials, or
  • efficiency in production.

Business KPIs that increase the risk of modern slavery could be sourcing the cheapest goods in the shortest amount of time, for example.

If the company discloses any of the above or related KPIs in relation to their negative impact on modern slavery, please indicate “Yes” value, and provide details.

If the company indicates it is planning to identify these KPIs in the future, please indicate “In Development” and include any relevant details.

If no such KPIs exist or are described in the statement, please select "No".

* Note on choosing the Year of your answer

Read the MSA Statement carefully to find out what year it covers. When a statement is referring to a Financial Year (FY) ending in Q1, it should be labeled with the previous year.


Statement for FY2018/19 ending in March 2019 = 2018

Statement for FY2018/19 ending in April 2019 (or later) = 2019
