Modern Slavery Statement

 

MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2020/21

 

Introduction

This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Park Cameras has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Park Cameras has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Our Business

Park Cameras was established in 1971 and is a leading independent specialist photography retailer, with stores in Burgess Hill and central London, and a website maintaining a range of more than 10,000 products. As well as selling the latest gear, we buy & sell used equipment and offer a wide range of additional lab services and personalised photo gifts.

Our Supply Chains

Park Cameras sources products from a broad range of national and some international suppliers.  Physical products range across cameras, lenses, drones, bags, tripods, memory cards, batteries and related accessories.

Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business and in our supply chains.

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

We work with reputable providers, many of which are also subject to the Act.  We take the management of our supply chain seriously and believe that it is important to responsibly select supplier partners.

All Tier 1 and two-thirds of Tier 2 suppliers, representing 75% of the company’s trade, have prepared and published modern slavery act statements.  We continue to review and gather information from our remaining suppliers.

Our due diligence procedures for supplier on-boarding have also been updated to include our modern slavery policy and processes of review, with a plan to roll this out.  Our supplier audit processes are being reviewed to ensure they identify any risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.

Training

We provide relevant training for our procurement/buying teams so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 28th February 2020 and was approved by the Board of Directors of Park Cameras Ltd on 30th January 2020.
