CoreData Modern Slavery Act Statement

CoreData Research is committed to ensuring that modern slavery does not exist in our organisation or suppliers. As an equal-opportunities employer, we're committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment for our staff. To date, we haven't been made aware of any reports of modern slavery within our organisation or any of our suppliers.

Policies and Processes

As a global company with a commitment to integrity and corporate social responsibility, we strive to maintain the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour from our employees and our suppliers:

  • Code of Ethics: Our code expects employees to maintain a high standard of conduct and work performance when representing the business.
  • Whistleblowing Policy: Our whistleblowing policy encourages all employees, customers and suppliers to report, without fear of retaliation, any suspicions, including any circumstances that may increase risk of slavery or human trafficking.
  • Due Diligence/Purchasing Code: We have updated our supplier contracts to make explicit reference to slavery and human trafficking. We undertake a higher level of due diligence to our suppliers if there is a higher risk of modern slavery.

Without limiting to any other policies, CoreData must:

  1. Not engage in any activity, practice or conduct that constitutes Modern Slavery;
  2. Use reasonable endeavours to ensure that no activity, practice or conduct occurs in CoreData’s operations and supply chains that constitutes Modern Slavery;
  3. Maintain, keep up to date and enforce CoreData’s own policies and procedures to ensure CoreData’s compliance with all Modern Slavery Laws and, if requested by Client, provide Client with copies of such policies and procedures;
  4. Notify Client as soon as reasonably practicable after CoreData become aware of any actual or suspected activity, practice or conduct of the type referred to in paragraphs (a) or (b);
  5. Provide Client with all information reasonably requested by Client, in order for Client to comply with Client’s reporting obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and similar legislation in any other jurisdiction, within thirty (30) days of Client’s request; and
  6. Use reasonable endeavours to ensure that CoreData’s employees, officers, subcontractors and agents comply with this clause.

Awareness and Training

  • We are raising awareness of modern slavery obligations to our staff and we continually take time to invest in education in order to recognise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and suppliers.
  • CoreData operates a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery. We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective policies and we will review annually the effectiveness of the steps taken to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in any of our business units.
