Modern Slavery Statement
Anzo Group Limited (“Anzo Group”) operates in a highly regulated industry and accordingly, legal and regulatory compliance are at the forefront of business operations. Anzo Group is committed to preventing modern slavery and human trafficking and it requires compliance from our employees and suppliers with all applicable laws and regulations, including the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Anzo Group’s companies have offices in Gibraltar, the United Kingdom, (where Anzo Group head office is located), the Czech Republic, Nigeria, Austria and Malta and the vast majority of our suppliers are based in the European Union and the United States of America. The group develops and operates sports publishing, online sportsbook/gambling and gaming services. In light of where we do business, where our suppliers are based and the industry in which we operate, we consider that there is a very low risk that modern slavery and human trafficking may affect our business. Our supply chain sectors primarily relate to typical services used in the general operation of our business such as information technology, marketing and professional services.
Nonetheless, we adopt policies and procedures which are designed to:
- Ensure all relevant staff are alert to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our
business and supply chains;
- Monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains;
- Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain; and
- Provide protection to whistleblowers.
We require staff engaged in the process for the selection of suppliers to conduct reasonable checks to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not affect any supplier or partner. This may include (but is not limited to) raising enquiries with the supplier / partner or asking them to provide a copy of relevant policies and their employee handbook.
Anzo Group has always chosen to work with reputable third parties across the various sectors that we engage in. Where appropriate we include contractual commitments and protections in our agreements with our suppliers where necessary, Anzo Group requires those suppliers to implement effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking from affecting any part of their business and supply chain.
Our staff are advised to take particular care for organisations that provide services from higher risk territories. Staff are also advised to notify the Anzo Group legal, compliance and HR teams immediately if they have any concerns so that Anzo Group can then take appropriate action.
In respect of staff employed by Anzo Group, our Employee Handbook makes clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the organisation (including that we will not tolerate modern slavery and human trafficking affecting any part of our business or supply chain). We strive to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating and managing our supply chain.
In addition, our HR and Recruitment teams continue to ensure that we comply with all applicable laws in the territories in which we are based. We seek to employ our own staff wherever possible which enables us to monitor working conditions and we only use specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour.
We are proud of the work environment we provide to our staff and the vibrant culture that permeates our business. We will continue to maintain zero tolerance of modern slavery across the business.
