Modern slavery and human trafficking are both acknowledged to be widespread and global problems. According to the Global Slavery Index an estimated 40.3 million people live in some form of modern slavery today. Slavery and human trafficking exist in different forms, but a general definition defines “slavery” as the state of being under the control of someone where a person is forced to work for another or do so under threat of a penalty. “Human trafficking” refers to the arranging or facilitating the travel or transport of individuals for the purpose of exploitation of that/those individual/s. We recognise that all businesses have a responsibility to work to prevent and eradicate all forms of modern slavery, both in their own business and supply chains by promoting of ethical business practice and policy. At totality services, we are committed to improving our practices to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business or supply chain. We expect the same commitment from our suppliers and business partners.
