Modern slavery is a significant global concern and can take many forms, but fundamentally is a range of exploitive practices including human trafficking, slavery, servitude, forced labour, child labour, withholding of wages and deceptive recruiting for labour or services.
As part of its ongoing commitment, HVG will comply with all applicable Australian and International slavery legislation including the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Clth) and the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (NSW).
HVG does not tolerate modern slavery and will not knowingly engage in or partner with companies or suppliers that engage in modern slavery. Our policies and practices in relation to procurement, human resources and corporate responsibility, support this commitment.
