MODERN SLAVERY ACT 2015
HOBBS TRANSPARENCY STATEMENT
Hobbs is committed to promoting human rights across our business and having a positive impact on our stakeholders and those who work at Hobbs.
We firmly believe the work we do reflects our commitment to providing our employees and our supply chain’s stakeholders with dignified work, putting human rights and labour standards at the centre of our programme.
The complexity of modern slavery allows it to exist in many forms. Greater transparency and collaboration with a wide range of different stakeholders will allow us to identify risks, prioritise how to approach the issue and, where needed, remediate in the most effective way.
This statement sets out some of the steps that Hobbs is taking to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not present in our business operations and supply chains. It covers the financial year ending 31 March 2020 and has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”).

Hobbs core policies relating to our commitment to adopting the UNGPs, to benefit all those who work on behalf of Hobbs are: Supplier Code Of Conduct, Migrant Workers Employment Policy & Implementation Guidelines , and the Young Worker & Child Labour Policy.
