Modern Slavery Act
We take a proactive approach to upholding our commitment to respect human rights, and identifying and mitigating potential human rights issues across our business and our wider sphere of influence. The Modern Slavery Act (MSA) 2015 , forms part of our approach to human rights as this regulation brings together the serious criminal offences of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking together under one piece of legislation. In 2017, we published our first annual statement on the MSA on RBS.com. This built upon our interim statement which was published in December 2016 and our existing policy framework.
- Reviewing our policy framework, to ensure it meets MSA requirements
- Identifying and addressing high risks within our business and supply chain
- Providing bespoke training and raising awareness.
