Modern Slavery Act Statement
YEAR ENDING 31 JULY 2018
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the MSA”) and sets out the steps that Coin Furniture Limited (trading as dwell) has taken to continue our work to assess the risk of modern slavery occurring in our business and to consider further what steps can be taken and procedures implemented to mitigate the risk of modern slavery occurring in our supply chain.
We have a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in the supply chain comply with our values and to ensure compliance we have produced this document and made all our suppliers aware of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
As part of the DFS Group and in line with the group Modern Slavery Policy we aim to minimise the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within Coin Furniture Ltd and its supply chain. This is done by monitoring and addressing issues of concern and protecting those who raise such concerns. Our audit programme requires all our suppliers to take measures to prevent slavery and human trafficking.
We undertake due diligence on all suppliers and conduct regular audits of existing suppliers in order to monitor, identify and assess potential risk areas and protect whistle blowers.
Our suppliers are carefully selected through a robust audit programme using auditors who focus on ethical standards including health and safety, child labour, working hours, wages and slavery. We work closely with suppliers to address any concerns and put corrective actions in place to reduce risks of potential non-conformance. Any serious breach or continual non-conformance will result in termination of engagement with that party.
Coin Furniture (trading as dwell) offer a wide range of contemporary furniture for all areas of the home. Items are produced in the Far East as well as Europe and offered for sale through a mailed 64 page catalogue, 36 retail outlets across the UK and our website. All orders are despatched and delivered from our Distribution centre in Bedfordshire by our in-house fleet and delivery team
Our team of QC inspectors are all either fully trained and qualified or undergoing training to take them to CPI/CSR- Lead Auditors level.
To ensure a wider understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking, we have distributed this policy and our requirements to all parties within our business and supply chains. To support this we undertake assessing the risk of slavery and human trafficking across our business.
Having the means of identifying signs of slavery or human trafficking and what action to take when concerns about potential or suspected instances of slavery or human trafficking arise, and to whom these concerns should be escalated to.
Each year we will issue a statement with any reports made of non-conformances or breaches to the Modern Slavery Act.
We hold files of all our suppliers along with a record of any reported whistle blowing activities. We will protect whistle blowers and work with our suppliers and supply chain to ensure we have complete transparency and cooperation.
We have had no reported breaches of the Modern Slavery Act in 2018.
