Modern Day Slavery and Supply Chain Transparency
1/ Our Structure, business and supply chains
Neon Moon Limited are a UK fashion brand. The business is headquartered in London, UK and sells its products throughout Europe, including the United Kingdom.
We are serious about our brand because it’s part of our identity and so is our commitment to corporate social responsibility.
Whilst we are not obligated by law to provide a slavery and human trafficking statement on behalf of the business, due to our turnover and size, we believe transparency is the best way we can ensure the public that we are doing our best as an ethical business.
In that spirit, we are publishing a statement for slavery and human trafficking, made in compliance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Our product ranges makes use of the highest quality materials. We currently only materials from suppliers in Europe, and in particular the UK. This allows us to focus our oversight and influence on these suppliers, as they are locally close to us. Where these suppliers use ‘downstream’, from a supply chain perspective i.e. source components from other suppliers, we work to understand these supply chains in detail.
We only engage suppliers who have a strong ethical trading stance, and suppliers are rigorously vetted by our management team before we engage in business with them.
2/ Slavery and human trafficking policy and approach
Our approach to slavery and human trafficking focuses on a number of areas:
Relationships: Strengthening our supplier engagement process and engaging with suppliers regularly.
Feedback: Conducting site visits to suppliers, so we can ascertain conditions in our supply chain.
Knowledge: Improving our knowledge base by collecting relevant data and improving product traceability.
Third party engagement: Building strategic alliances with independent social auditors and NGO’s.
Accountability: Establishing a framework within our business to allow for issues, concerns or suggestions to be raised.
Training: individuals employed by Neon Moon Limited review this policy, as part of their induction.
3/ Due Diligence / Supply Chain Transparency
We understand that our biggest exposure to Modern Slavery is in our product supply chains.
Within these areas, new suppliers and factories / sites are subject to due diligence checks in the form of ethical/compliance audits.
Such audits are also regularly conducted for existing suppliers and factories / sites.
These audits assess compliance with our sourcing principles and are, amongst other things, intended to identify any Modern Slavery practices.
If issues are identified, appropriate investigative and remedial actions will be taken.
4/ Key performance indicators
In order to assess the effectiveness of our modern slavery measures we review on a regular basis the following indicators:
- Any concerns flagged by our team regarding suppliers, their conduct or practices.
- Any notifications we receive
