Weybourne Holdings Pte. Ltd. Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

For the year ended 31 December 2023

Pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this constitutes the Modern Slavery Act Statement for Weybourne Holdings Pte. Ltd. (“Weybourne Holdings”) and its subsidiaries (“the Group”) for the financial year ended 31 December 2023 to combat modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain. The Group, headquartered in Singapore, carries out businesses across markets through Weybourne Holdings’ principal subsidiaries, Dyson Holdings Pte. Ltd. (“Dyson”), Dyson Farming Limited (“Dyson Farming”) and Weybourne Limited (“Weybourne”).  

 

Weybourne Holdings is committed to acting in an ethical manner and to ensuring that modern slavery plays no part in the operations of our businesses or that of our suppliers.  We have a zero-tolerance policy for modern slavery and human trafficking, and we expect the same commitment from all third parties with whom we have a business relationship. To that end, a code of conduct is supplied to all third parties we engage with, which includes steps that we expect them to have taken to eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking and requires them to be transparent about their efforts in this regard. This includes conducting risk assessments to identify and address modern slavery risks and carrying out due diligence processes when entering into business relationships with third parties. It is also made clear that Weybourne Holdings reserves the right to commission an audit of all such third parties’ business activities (including their anti-modern slavery and human trafficking practices) and / or terminate any agreements should this code of conduct be breached.  

 

A number of company policies and procedures exist to ensure the fair treatment of all those employed directly and indirectly by Weybourne Holdings.  These include “right to work” checks, a whistleblowing / Speak Up policy, a Respect at Work policy and an Equal Opportunities policy.  Any activities formally investigated under these policies and resulting decisions are reported to the Board of Directors at each quarterly meeting.
