Compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act
According to the Global Slavery Index, modern slavery affects some 45.8 million people around the world. This practice can take many forms, such as forced labour, human trafficking, child labour or undignified working conditions. ZEISS does not tolerate or accept any form of modern slavery within its operations or in its supply chain. In case any allegations of modern slavery are reported, ZEISS will handle them very seriously and take appropriate steps to stop further harm. Where ZEISS finds that it has contributed to harm it will look to see what steps it could take to remedy that harm.
The responsible, law-abiding and ethical behaviour of a company and its employees are therefore of key importance for business partners, customers, authorities and the public. A good reputation and compliance with applicable laws are major factors that help determine a company's success. Employees also want to take pride in their company. It is equally important to make stringent demands on business partners and suppliers so that they also take social responsibility seriously in their supply chain and wider operations.
ZEISS is a top international player in the fields of optics and optoelectronics and works closely with a global supplier network. We can therefore only meet our own expectations, as well as societal and customer expectations, when our suppliers also adhere to social standards and play their part in ensuring sustainable development. Consequently ZEISS runs numerous activities in order to minimise the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking, and to promote fair working conditions.
