Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 setting out the steps taken by Frontier Software to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.


Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Frontier Software has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business relationships, which includes implementing policies and procedures to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Supply Chains

Our supply chains include but are not limited to premises, hardware providers, maintenance services and stationery suppliers. We have reviewed the risks that these supply chains can present and we expect our suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero tolerance approach to exploitation. Any supplier found not complying with the provisions of the Act will have their contract terminated.

Further Steps 

Going forward, Frontier Software is committed to continuously strengthening our due diligence processes in relation to our supply chain to identify where modern slavery and human trafficking risks may exist in our business and supply chains, and to continuously improve and develop our policies, procedures and processes to address those risks. 

We continue to inform our staff about these issues and raise their awareness of how to recognise and respond to indicators of human rights abuses.
