Modern Slavery can occur in various forms including servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which include the deprivation of a person’s (an adult or child’s) liberty by another (collectively “Modern Slavery”). The following sets out the procedures Panasonic has put in place with the aim of preventing opportunities for Modern Slavery to occur within our business or supply chain. In Panasonic we believe that Corporate Business should play a significant role in preventing Modern Slavery by ensuring implementation of human rights for all workers in its whole supply chain.
Panasonic Energy Europe NV is committed to make efforts to confront Modern Slavery at its sites and along its entire supply chain, in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Panasonic Energy Europe NV published its first Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement in 2016. This fourth statement demonstrates its concern and continuous intentions to encourage the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As an international company we understand our responsibility in supporting goal 8 ‘Decent work and economic growth’ and especially target 8.7.
