We are leading media services companies and our portfolios provide the best talent, creativity, technology and innovation to some of the world’s most iconic and successful brands. We always strive to work to the highest professional standards and comply with all laws, regulations and rules relevant to our business.
Our Supply Chain
We have commenced mapping our supply chains to analyse the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Our key suppliers are media owners, media suppliers, research companies, technology service providers and software service providers. Modern forms of slavery and human trafficking are not prevalent in the industries in which these suppliers operate. We expect the same high standards as those to which we hold ourselves from those businesses with which we work.
We believe the nature of our work, our supply chains and their industries to be low risk in terms of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Our corporate responsibility strategy, codified in the Omnicom Group Code of Business Conduct, aims to improve the impact of our business on society and we are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Our new Supplier Code of Conduct reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. A copy of our new supplier new Supplier Code of Conduct can be supplied upon request.
Our steps to implement this new Supplier Code of Conduct are ongoing and are as follows:
1. communicating the new Supplier Code of Conduct to our suppliers;
2. aiming for our new supplier contracts to contain express warranties and indemnities regarding compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and our new Supplier Code of Conduct; and
3. taking a zero tolerance approach to suppliers who fail to comply with our new Supplier Code of Conduct, other relevant policies and procedures and with applicable laws.
We continue to review our policies and processes in an effort to go beyond basic social and environmental regulations and to ensure the highest standards in our supply chain, as expected by our customers and the companies with which we work.
We understand that this is a continual process in our efforts to ensure that no form of forced labour or slavery is present in our business or our supply chain. We continue to work on:
1. identifying relevant members of staff who would benefit from anti-modern slavery and anti-human trafficking training and guidance, so that training and guidance may be provided; and
2. identifying the risks and level of exposure within our supply chain, and managing such risks responsibly.
