At Lion, we take transparency and accountability seriously which is why we report publicly on a number of different parts of our business. We report both voluntarily and in compliance with various pieces of legislation and regulation. The following policies and reports provide a snapshot of the work we do at Lion.
Lion is committed to acting with integrity and building a transparent and ethical supply chain. This extends to respecting and upholding business ethics, implementing sustainable practices, and upholding the human rights of our own employees, as well as other people impacted by our extended value chains.
Our Procurement Policy and Supplier Responsible Sourcing Code embrace the International Bill of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and enact within our value chains the UN Global Compact core values of human rights, labour standards, the environment as well as anti-corruption and its 10 principles.
Under our responsible sourcing code, Lion is requiring all suppliers to commit to a strict set of criteria to minimise the risk of modern slavery in our supply chains, including:
- That employment is freely chosen;
- That all employees have a legal right to work in their respective countries of employment;
- That freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected;
- That child labour is not used;
- That working conditions are safe, healthy and hygienic;
- That fair wages are paid and working hours are not excessive; and
- That workers are treated fairly and with respect.
Lion will file a comprehensive statement under the Australian Modern Slavery Act for 2020, in its first round of reporting, outlining the action we are taking to help ensure that our supply chains are free from modern slavery.
Lion has already filed a modern slavery statement under UK legislation – click here to read our statement.
