Modern Slavery Statement
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 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.
Ptarmigan Media Limited ('Ptarmigan Media') 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.
Ptarmigan Media's Group companies provides a variety of services in the media planning and buying space.
In doing so, it relies on suppliers, who are scattered around the world. Key suppliers are those providing publications, websites, outdoor billboards, events management, research and digital media tools. Some of whom may operate in countries in which the risk of forced labour is significantly greater than in the UK or where business is not conducted according to the moral and legal standards prevalent in the UK. This necessitates careful evaluation of such suppliers, which Ptarmigan Media undertakes.
Supply Chain verification
Ptarmigan Media undertakes informal supplier selection procedures across all of its activities where it feels a degree of greater risk applies. 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.
Serious violations of our terms and conditions would lead to the termination of the business relationship Ptarmigan Media enjoys with a supplier.
Our internal accountability standards and procedures help us to ensure that all our employees conduct business in an ethical manner. Ptarmigan Media requires its staff to comply with the laws of the countries in which we operate and with all Ptarmigan Media's 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.
Ptarmigan Media invests in educating its staff to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.
Our employees are encouraged to identify, prevent and if necessary report potential slavery or human trafficking issues.
