Our Supply Chain
Luluh Lane uses a wide range of suppliers who supply goods for sale, provide services at events and support our operations. We consult various sources of information to review and identify the areas at greatest risk of slavery, forced labour and human trafficking in our supply chains and focus our resource to respond.
Luluh Lane carries out comprehensive due diligence on suppliers in high-risk areas and has developed very clear and robust procedures for assessing and auditing those suppliers. This ensures that we only select suppliers who comply with our high standards and policies.
All suppliers which we class as high risk must:
- Complete a Modern Slavery Act Due Diligence questionnaire which covers their governance, policies, training and supply chains management processes; and
- Provide a full and complete list of all sites they are proposing to commission goods from on behalf of Nookee on an annual basis.
All manufacturing sites must then provide an annual Independent Ethical Audit to ensure ethical standards and full transparency are maintained.
Luluh Lane has an internal team responsible for assessing information and documentation submitted by suppliers. Should a supplier fail or refuse to provide the information required or meet Luluh Lane's expectations, this may result in Luluh Lane not entering into a relationship with them or terminating any current relationship.
Luluh Lane has a number of policies which aim to minimise the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain. These include:
- Working with Suppliers and Partners Policy which sets out internal requirements for buying goods and services;
- Responsible Procurement Policy covering issues of human rights, child and forced labour and modern slavery, which Luluh Lane suppliers are required to comply with; and
- Whistleblowing Policy which encourages staff to report any concerns including any related to modern slavery/trafficking and child and forced labour.
During the year, training was provided to those teams who have direct responsibility for relevant supply chain management.
We will continue to review our procurement process and engage with our suppliers.
