Combatting modern slavery and human trafficking and identifying risks
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in our own business and expect parties in our supply chain to adhere to these values. In the course of 2023, as part of our due diligence review of third parties, we undertook a risk-based assessment of all of Bhvn’s third party suppliers and we reviewed the risk profile of each supplier. Our agreements require suppliers to undertake, on an ongoing basis, that they do not have any modern slavery or human trafficking in the businesses or supply chains, and thus support Bhvn’s pre-contractual supplier due diligence. As at the date of this Statement, we have not identified evidence of or received any disclosure in relation to modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains. However, we intend to continually monitor our supply chains closely and examine any risks identified.
We conduct pre-employment screening checks, offer standard working hours for all employees, each of our employees receives a salary which exceeds the National Living Wage and we offer training to managers to prevent bullying and harassment in the workplace. In addition, we have in place systems and policies to protect whistleblowers. This statement is made available to all of our staff members and included within our joining materials for our new employees. In addition, we will be introducing training on modern slavery and human trafficking as part of our compulsory internal training programme. This training will be rolled out to all Bhvn staff.
