Modern Slavery Policy Statement
Modern Slavery Act 2015
We believe that Corporations and other business organizations have social, cultural and environmental responsibilities to the community in which they seek to operate. One of those social imperatives we take very seriously is modern slavery-like practices. Accordingly, we are instituting practices within our organization to minimize the risk of these practices in our supply chain
Freeman’s head offices are in Dallas, Texas with subsidiaries located in the UK.
Freeman is a global company of thinkers, suppliers and doers who strive to help organizations build meaningful relationships with their most important audiences.
Our Supply Chains
Our supply chains include the sourcing of labor, consumables, software, hardware, consumables and service related items that are principally related to audio visual services, strategic services, carpentry, rigging, electrical, design services, creative content creation, video production, carpet and furnishing rentals, transportation and the maintenance of same.
We are committed to upholding fundamental human rights and believe that all human beings around the world should be treated with dignity, fairness, and respect. Our company will only engage suppliers and direct contractors who demonstrate a serious commitment to the health and safety of their workers, and operate in compliance with human rights laws. Freeman does not use or condone the use of slave labor or human trafficking, denounces any degrading treatment of individuals or unsafe working condition, and supports our products being free of conflict minerals.
We are committed to managing our business and supply chain so that it is untainted by modern slavery- like offences. We are putting together a cross-divisional work group to design a periodic review system of our supply chain in order to assess the level of risk that these practices could exist within our supply chain.
