The statement identifies the modern slavery risks within our business and our supply chains, and the actions we are taking to address them, including the establishment of a Sustainable Procurement Action Plan.
Transdev Australasia CEO Luke Agati said the fight against modern slavery was important to the company and our stakeholders.
“Our purpose at Transdev is to give people the freedom to move every day, thanks to safe, reliable and innovative solutions that serve the common good,
“Showing genuine care for our employees, stakeholders, communities and our customers is at the very heart of our purpose, and therefore so too is the fight to combat modern slavery.” Mr. Agati said.
Transdev Australasia’s Chief Legal and Commercial Officer Nathan Lanthois said publishing the statement was an important milestone for the company
“The goods and services we buy as a business, and whom we partner with, can have both positive and negative consequences for our communities and the sustainability of our business,
“Developing our first Modern Slavery Statement has been a collaborative effort involving many of our teams and operations, and we are setting a foundation to achieve positive social, environmental and economic change through procurement,” Mr Lanthois said.
