Anti-Slavery Policy

Anti-Slavery Policy Statement

ProNitrile has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery & is committed to preventing acts of slavery & human trafficking from occurring within both its business & supply chain, & imposes these same high standards on its contractors, suppliers & other business partners.

Company Structure

ProNitrile is a Canadian company committed to providing the ultimate solutions in barriers protection. As such, ProNitrile has an extensive supply chain & procurement of goods & services & we work with a wide range of different suppliers & partners each of which will have their own subcontractors, affiliates & associate entities. ProNitrile is therefore connected to multiple entities (for instance China, Malaysia, Vietnam) through numerous contractual relationships.

Due Diligence Process

We have;

  • Made our staff aware of the Modern Slavery Act, including its definition of slavery & human trafficking
  • Told staff what to do if they suspect a case of slavery or human trafficking
  • Contacted suppliers & partners in potentially higher risk categories to check what assurance arrangements they have in place
  • We have reviewed our procurement contracts & related documents to include prohibitions in respect of slavery & human trafficking & compliance with the legislation
  • Reviewed our whistleblowing policy
  • We have visited the factories of all our key partners as part of our own due diligence
  • The above procedures are designed to;
    – Identify & assess potential risk areas in our business & supply chains
    – Reduce the risk of slavery & human trafficking occurring in our business & supply chains
    – Monitor potential risk areas in our business & supply chains
    – Provide adequate protection for whistle-blowers
