Dyson Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement 2017
Dyson is a technology company with offices worldwide, including the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and the Phillippines. We are committed to conducting ethical and environmentally responsible business.
Dyson and its suppliers work to an ethical and environmental code of conduct which sets out Dyson's requirements in relation to labour practices, health and safety, responsible sourcing and environmental standards. Dyson is clear that forced labour in any form is unacceptable.
Dyson has a dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team that works with suppliers through a combination of assessments using ethical database Sedex, supplier training and audits. Dyson uses information from Sedex risk assessments to help prioritise suppliers for audit. In addition to audits, Dyson operates a third party hotline for workers to make contact and raise any issues relating to working conditions.
Audits are conducted by Dyson auditors or by independent CSR auditors. In order to fully understand the working environment in a supplier facility, the auditors interview a cross-section of the workforce without management present.
