Modern Slavery Statement 2017

WDFG UK Limited

 

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 requires certain large organisations to produce a statement annually about their efforts in each relevant financial year to eradicate modern slavery in their businesses and supply chains. WDFG UK Limited (WDFG) has produced this statement in compliance with its obligations in respect of its financial year ended 31 December 2017.

 

WDFG operates in the travel retail sector, offering a wide range of products, mainly in the following categories: perfumes and cosmetics; food; watches, jewellery and sunglasses; leather and luggage; alcohol; tobacco; souvenirs; and toys. WDFG sources its products from a range of third party suppliers, who are generally selected centrally, and most of which include highly reputable international brands. WDFG does not manufacture any products of its own.

 

During the period, WDFG was not aware of any existing or previous occurrence of human trafficking or slavery within its business or supply chain.

 

Following the acquisition of WDFG by Dufry AG (Dufry), a Swiss based travel retailer, Dufry has prepared its first Sustainability Report in 2017, that is aligned with the Guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and its Core Option Standard.

 

Dufry strives to ensure that its suppliers of goods and services behave responsibly towards society. To ensure this, Dufry expects suppliers and business partners to comply with law, stipulated contract conditions and international best practices in respect of human rights. In 2017, Dufry has developed a new Supplier’s Code of Conduct, which is currently being implemented in relation to Dufry’s largest, as well as new suppliers.

 

The Sustainability Report for the year ending 31 December 2017, is in Dufry’s annual report 2017, which was published on 15 March 2018 and is available on Dufry’s website (www.dufry.com).
