Modern Slavery Act
Growthpoint is required, under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), to prepare a modern slavery statement disclosing the modern slavery risks in our operation and supply chains, the actions undertaken to address these risks and the steps implemented to assess the effectiveness of these actions.
We have established an internal working group to evaluate and undertake actions to address modern slavery risks in our supply chain, with an initial focus on the operational practices and procurement of services by our third party property management providers across our portfolio.
Our modern slavery statement will be prepared for FY20 and will be made available by December 2020.
