Anti-slavery policy statement

Plastic Free North Devon has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain, and imposes those same high standards on its contractors, suppliers and other business partners.

Charity structure

Plastic Free North Devon is North Devon’s source of information as to how to reduce personal and business plastic footprints. Plastic Free North Devon offers a range of resources, activities and advice to businesses and residents.

As such, Plastic Free North Devon has a limited supply chain and procure goods and services to no value greater than £100,000 per year. We work with a short list of different suppliers, subcontractors and partners.

Due diligence processes


Operate strict procurement processes, ensuring suppliers comply with all applicable laws and standards, including those which relate to the Modern Slavery Act;

  • Expect our suppliers to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes in place within their own businesses and to cascade those policies to their own suppliers.

  • The PFND Management Team follow the advice and guidance in relation to the Modern Slavery Act set out in the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) code of professional conduct;

  • Provide regular advice and guidance in respect of the Modern Slavery Act to our Management Team.

  • Have added a specific item relating to the Modern Slavery Act to all supplier contract negotiations enabling us to be kept informed of any changes;

  • Include appropriate terms in any contractual documentation, obliging suppliers and contractors to comply with the Modern Slavery Act and reserving the right for Plastic Free North Devon to audit suppliers and contractors, where we consider it appropriate;

  • Encourage management, staff and volunteers to identify and report any potential breaches of PFND’s anti-slavery policy statement;

  • Whistle blowers are protected through our confidential reporting process.

The above procedures are designed to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our operations and supply chains.

  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.

  • Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains.

  • Provide adequate protection for whistle blowers.

  • This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Plastic Free North Devon's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31/3/19.

Cookie Policy

The Plastic Free North Devon Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we deploy cookies as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the “like” or “follow” button on a post, for example).
