Modern Slavery Statement


Introduction

Babylon Partners Limited (including Group companies) (“Babylon”) is committed to conducting its business fairly, honestly and openly. We take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in both our business and our supply chain.

We have reviewed our existing risk management processes following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“MSA”) to determine to what extent measures already exist, and what further measures may be required to prevent slavery and human trafficking taking place in any part of our businesses or in our supply chains.


Purpose

This statement sets out Babylon Partners Ltd actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains. This statement relates to actions and activities during the financial year 1st January 2019 to 31st December 2019.

The organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

This statement covers the activities of Babylon Partners Limited (including Group companies). Babylon’s mission is to put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on earth. We are passionate about high-quality and convenient healthcare. We believe that the how we achieve our mission is just as important as what we achieve, and we are committed to delivering our mission in a humane way.


Organisation Structure

Head officed in London, Babylon provides a range of technology led healthcare products to the market. As a global organisation we work with public sector and private organisations across the world to implement and deliver our solutions. As of December 2019, Babylon has circa 1700 employees worldwide based predominantly in London alongside Canada, USA, Rwanda and Singapore.

Due diligence process for slavery and human trafficking

We have in place systems to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistle blowers.


Our Supply Chains

Babylon is committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the MSA. We expect the same high standards from all our suppliers and business partners. Babylon require our suppliers to hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.


Further steps

To underpin our policy commitments, Babylon will undertake the following measures:

  • Conduct risk assessments to determine which parts of our business and which of our suppliers are most at risk of modern slavery;
  • Put in place appropriate training where this is identified as required following risk assessments;
  • Engage with our suppliers both to convey our Modern Slavery Policy and to gain an understanding of the measures taken by them to ensure modern slavery is not occurring in their businesses and their supply chain

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2019.
