20 March 2019
This statement is issued on behalf of the CF Entities in accordance with the requirements of the United Kingdom’s Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The CF Entities continue to recognise that modern slavery is an international issue that forces vulnerable people to work illegally against their will.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and aim to ensure that our employees, subcontractors and suppliers understand our commitment to human rights and are able to identify and report indications of exploitation.
CF Entities are primarily engaged in the arrangement of cargo and passenger aircraft charters, freight air transportation, together with the provision, and arrangement of, aviation support services. In the cargo market, CF Entities specialise in arranging charters and leases of aircraft for a wide ranging client base including freight forwarders, multinational corporations, governments and humanitarian agencies. Our passenger charter activities service the air travel requirements of multinational corporations, HNWIs, travel industry partners and leading names from the entertainment business.
Our supplier network consists predominantly of commercial aircraft operators engaged in the transportation by air of passengers and/or cargo, together with other aviation support services providers, as well as overland and sea transportation companies. The majority of these suppliers are engaged on a short term, transaction specific, basis.
We will not knowingly conduct business with anyone engaged in modern slavery or human trafficking or knowingly permit such conduct to be carried out in any of our supply chains.
We have adopted a risk-based approach to the assessment of our business and supply chain, taking geographical, industry, regulatory and market factors into account in order to identify whether there are in fact categories of supply that present a higher risk of modern slavery being present.
To date, there have been no reported instances of concerns regarding modern slavery within our businesses or supplier network.
Responsibility for the CF Entities’ anti-slavery initiatives is as follows:
