Financial Year Ending 31st December 2017

Introduction

Gravity Media Group Limited (“GMG”) is committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

GMG was formed in 2000 and owns and operates businesses predominantly serving the live broadcast sector globally. We are part of the Gravity Media Group (the “Group”), and our ultimate parent company is Gravity Media Group Holdings Limited which has its head office in England. Further information on the companies in the Group can be found on our website. GMG has offices in the United Kingdom, Australia, USA, Qatar and France. This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by GMG and its other relevant group companies during the year ending 31st December 2016 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.

Group Policy

GMG is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in out supply chains.

Understanding the risks within GMG operations

In assessing how we can best address issues of modern slavery within our supply chain, we have assessed each area of business to determine which parts are likely to be affected.

Due to the nature of its services, live broadcast in the global sector, this may involve using complex and diverse global supply chains and operating in international locations. This has been identified as being a particular risk.

Where a contract is identified as being within a particularly high risk area (whether by product or geographical location) suppliers will be asked to confirm they will adhere to GMG’s Anti-slavery Policy and, where relevant, may be asked to provide details to ensure any products or services comply.

Ensuring the effectiveness of GMG Policy

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.

Looking ahead

Over the next year GMG intends to build on the work that has already been carried out in identifying risks in the GMG supply chains and take this forward to inform an enhanced programme of supplier due diligence as part of our efforts to ensure there is no compulsory labour and human trafficking within the GMG supply chains. Responsibility for progressing and monitoring this will be included in the remit of the GMG board. Contractual provisions and management protocols will be reviewed to ensure they are effective in managing the risk of modern slavery being present in the GMG supply chains

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 31st December 2017.
