Line Equipment Ltd is committed to ensuring that we conduct our business in a way that supports the prevention of modern slavery and human trafficking, including through our supply chain. We strive to ensure that our business and supply chain reflect our values, which include the respect for human rights and a belief that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. We continuously aim to improve our practices to combat modern slavery and human trafficking and to work with and encourage our suppliers to uphold these principles. More specifically:
- Line Equipment Ltd has a Code of Business Conduct and a Global Ethics and Compliance open line approach via it’s Managing Director.
