Measures to safeguard against modern slavery • • • •

HFG operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. We work only with a number of pre-approved, reputable agencies for the selection of hired-in personnel. Our Code of Conduct forms part of our contract with suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts it. All employees work on the basis of a written contract, drafted in a language they understand which details all their conditions of employment including their salary, working hours and vacation days.

Training In addition to classroom trainings given to HFG's new employees about HFG's Code of Conduct and compliance policies, we trained relevant functions of our organization in order to understand the signs of modern slavery and be able to act if they suspect that slavery is taking place within our supply chain. Our performance indicators Our monitoring activities did not lead to any non-conformances. No reports were received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
