Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Introduction from the Board
Chip Chip Ltd trading as Cozilogs fully supports the government’s objectives to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking.
CoziLogs produces premium Kiln Dried Firewood for log users to burn a high-quality fuel with a high heat content. Our dry fuel is made from 100% local virgin sustainably sourced BSL/FSC certified timber with a low moisture content of less than 20% for an ideal fuel for your log boiler, wood burner or open fire whether you are heating your home or your business.
About our supply chain
Cozilogs supply chain network covers the products we sell, the transportation and delivery of such products and our day-to-day operations.
The firewood we sell are generally purchased from local forestry management companies in the UK. These relationships are managed by dedicated teams based at our head office. These supply chains are very straightforward with normally no middle man.
Our policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
Our anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, helping to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business. We expect all those in our supply chain to comply with this approach.
Our due diligence during the reporting period
Prior to entering into agreements with suppliers we issue them with a compliance form which is designed to assess areas of potential risk within our supply chains and aims to ensure that the suppliers have their own clearly defined ethical working practices including suitable anti‐slavery and human trafficking policies and processes within their businesses and confirmation that they comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Going forward we intend to continue to enhance our supplier due diligence process. We recognise that due to a large number of supplier relationships throughout our business a risk-based approach is appropriate in seeking to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or our supply chain.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business we are developing the training available for our staff, and we encourage them to identify and report any potential concerns.
We will assess any instances of non‐compliance on a case‐by‐case basis and tailor any remedial action appropriately.
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Chip Chip Ltd anti‐slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2019. It sets out the steps taken, and those which Chip Chip intends to take in the future to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
The statement has been approved by the Chip Chip Holdings Board of Directors who will review and update it on an annual basis.
