  • 1.1  Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. These have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Ultra has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. Ultra is committed to: acting ethically and with integrity in all its business dealings and relationships; and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery does not take place anywhere in its business or in any of its supply chains.
  • 1.2  Ultra is committed to ensuring there is transparency in its business and in its approach to tackling modern slavery throughout its supply chains. Ultra expects the same high standards from all of its contractors, suppliers and other business partners.
  • 2.1  Although ultimate responsibility for the implementation of this policy lies with the Ultra Group Board of Directors, this requirement has been delegated to Managing Directors and Presidents who are responsible for the implementation and control of this policy within their respective businesses. Divisional MDs/Presidents are responsible for monitoring the compliance of this policy by the businesses within their division.
