Modern Slavery Act Statement

Alfred Dunhill Limited
MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT
Financial Year 2022/2023

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (MSA). It sets out the steps that Alfred Dunhill Limited (the Company) has taken during the fiscal year ending 31 March 2023 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its supply chains or within any part of the business.

The Company has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all business dealings. The Company recognises that no supply chain is without risk of modern slavery, and openly works with supply chain partners to better understand these risks and work together to mitigate them.

The Company has voluntarily published a modern slavery statement each year since 2016, which illustrates their ongoing commitment to acting transparently and tackling systemic modern slavery.

ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE

The Company is part of the Richemont group (the Group) and our ultimate parent company is Compagnie Financière Richemont SA, Chemin de la Chênaie 50, 1293, Bellevue, Switzerland. The Group owns a number of luxury brands (Maisons) in the Jewellery, Specialist Watchmakers, Online Distributors and Other (primarily fashion and accessories) sectors.

Whilst each Maison within the Group operates as an autonomous business, the Group provides certain centralised support services including supply chain compliance, sourcing, and procurement. Subsequently, the Group works with the Maisons to set the required standards and to implement necessary policies and procedures which each Maison and each legal entity within the Group is expected to adhere to.

The Business

The Company engages with carefully selected suppliers to provide its products and /or services. The products are sold through either the Company’s own-managed points of sales or through authorised wholesale accounts. As part of the Group, the Company adheres to Group policies, procedures and standards relating to the management of its supply chain and its corporate governance can be found here: https://www.richemont.com/en/home/about- us/corporate-governance/

The Company is managed by an Executive Committee (ExCo) comprised of key managers from across each business function. The Company’s corporate office, after-sales service centre and a repair and manufacturing facility, are located in London. The Company operates four stores in the UK. At time of reporting, there are 159 UK-based employees.

SUPPLY CHAINS AND PROCUREMENT

Supply Chain Relationships

The Company maintains strong, long-term relationships with suppliers based on the principles of fair, open, and ethical operations whilst ensuring the continued quality of its branded products. In the past years, the Company has undergone a consolidation of its supply chain, with the majority of the network in Italy, to increase visibility and management of operations.

Supply Chain Policies and Supplier Code of Conduct

New suppliers must undergo a robust due diligence procedure, conducted by the supply chain and product development teams. As part of this process, suppliers are required to sign specific terms and conditions of purchase and other documents including the Group’s Supplier Code of Conduct(Supplier Code of Conduct), as well as evidence their own rigorous internal procedures and policies.

The Supplier Code of Conduct is based on the main ILO Conventions, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines and the United Nations Global Compact 10 Principles, amongst others. It reflects emerging best practice in the areas of business and human rights, whistleblowing and grievance mechanisms amongst others. During the year, the Supplier Code was updated to reflect the developed changes on the Speak-Up tool. The Supplier Code is available in 13 languages on the Group's website: richemont-supplier-code-of-conduct-01- 2022-eng.pdf

Suppliers with whom we contract directly will also be required to adhere to the Supplier Code. In exceptional circumstances, suppliers may be permitted to adhere to their own internal equivalent to the Supplier Code of Conduct, but only where the supplier’s own internal processes exceed the Company’s Supplier Code of Conduct.

Standards of Business Conduct Policy

The Standards of Business Conduct sets out the Group’s commitment to diversity stipulating that all aspects of the employment relationship should be free from any form of discrimination. The Standard of Business Conduct also delineates specific standards of ethical behaviour expected from employees. The business and human rights section of the Standards of Business Conduct further highlights the Group’s commitment to respecting and promoting human rights as described in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct.

This document also sets out the Group’s whistleblowing and grievance reporting line, the Speak Up platform. Launched internally in 2022, this platform should be used to raise any concerns about unethical or illegal behaviour. The Speak Up platform is a comprehensive reporting tool that ensures the Group’s values are maintained and all reported concerns are taken seriously without any fear of retaliation. A concern can be reported to the Speak Up platform through the online process or via telephone and the status of an existing question or concern can be checked on the platform.

The Speak Up platform is accessible on the intranet for employees and will be made available on the Group’s external facing website and can used by external stakeholders such as suppliers, clients, business partners and the wider public. The aim is to empower our people to report suspicious activities and foster an open culture where concerns can be raised. To ensure impartiality the reporting system is overseen by the Head of Internal Audit, who is independent from management and reports to the Chair of the Audit Committee. The extension of the Speak Up Platform to external shareholders took place in May 2023 and we are aware that this action is beyond the reporting timeframe, but we consider relevant to mention it here.

Risk Management, Monitoring and Due Diligence Processes

In terms of human rights due diligence, the Group looks into its whole value chain in order to identify any potential human rights risk, from the sourcing of raw material, to the relationships with our clients.

In 2022 the Group conducted a human rights risk scan to complete our understanding of actual and potential human rights impact along our value chain. Outcomes presented that activities with higher exposure to human rights risks include: raw material sourcing, making and manufacturing, storage, as well as transport and distribution. As a result, we are adapting our due diligence measures in these areas. For instance, the Group have launched a specific assessment for our logistic activities to develop risk mitigation plans.

The Group also conducts regular audits of leather and textile suppliers, as well as indirect suppliers. In this context they leverage their Sedex membership and their SMETA audit referential.

Raw Materials

Sourcing of raw materials and indirect procurement within many businesses’ supply chains could be susceptible of human rights impacts such as modern slavery. Strict rules are applied to the engagement of suppliers, procurement, and the sourcing of raw materials by the Company, as outlined in the Group’s Supplier Code of Conduct and Environment Code of Conduct https://www.richemont.com/media/lbod5lyh/richemont_environment_code_of_conduct_1605201 9.pdf

PEOPLE POLICIES

Training and Capacity Building

We are advancing the implementation of our human rights work by building capacity through training. In FY23, Richemont launched a training on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking. The training is available to all employees worldwide and it is mandatory for employees located in Australia, France, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland and United Kingdom, aligned with local jurisdiction. By the end of FY23, 80% of dunhill employees completed the training.

All new Company employees are asked to read and acknowledge the Group’s Standards of Business Conduct mentioned in this statement.

Employees

The Group have a whistleblowing policy and a hotline (Speak-Up Platform) for employees to voice any concerns they may have related to the operations of the business. The Company is committed to maintaining and improving systems and processes to eliminate all forms of forced and compulsory labour within its supply chain and its business. The Company will continue to review its policies andprocesses to ensure the highest standards in its supply chain, as expected by customers, the companies with which it works and in accordance with the requirements of the Group.

LOOKING AHEAD

The Group will continue its work collaboratively with industry organisations and business partners to promote best practices across its full supply chain and continue to ensure an ethical supply chain.

In its annual Sustainability Report, the Group states its intention to continue to prioritise transparency in its supply chains as well as due diligence and risk mitigation measures. The Group highlighted by the appointment of the Group’s first Chief Sustainability Officer in 2022 who joined the Senior Executive Committee in 2023. In FY24, the Company will hire a Director of Quality and Sustainability, to further drive the sustainability strategy internally, increasing governance, ownership and progression.

The Group is conducting regular materiality assessments to proactively engage with internal and external stakeholders and continue to monitor sustainability reporting framework. Taking this into consideration, looking ahead the Group will strengthen its management systems and human rights due diligence processes in order to prioritize our focus areas in the field and accordingly develop strategies that will allow us to prevent, mitigate and in case it is necessary remediate any potential human rights risk.

The deployment of the Speak-Up platform and of other product social impact assessments will be valuable tools that will assist the Group in this journey, as it will be the collaboration and engagement with the Group’s main stakeholders.

Consequently, the Group is working on developing different ways of training both its employees and other relevant stakeholders in order to raise awareness on human rights. Being a member of SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) since 2021, the ongoing implementation of this platform across the supply chain, has meant having additional risk mitigation tools to assist in this journey. The Company has set ambitious social auditing targets for year-on-year continuous improvement, committing to work with the supply chain to proactively tackle worker rights and Health and Safety factors within their ecosystem. The SEDEX membership will aid in reinforcing ethical supply chain practices through the application of the SMETA audit standard.

Our Business

Alfred Dunhill Limited engages with carefully selected suppliers to manufacture its products and/or provide relevant services to the company. We sell our branded products either through Alfred Dunhill Limited’s own-managed points of sales or through authorised wholesale accounts. As part of the Richemont Group (“Group”), Alfred Dunhill Limited adheres to Group policies, procedures and standards relating to the management of its supply chain and its general business conduct.

Our Supply Chain Relationships

Alfred Dunhill Limited maintains strong, long-term relationships with suppliers based on the principles of fair, open, and ethical operations whilst ensuring the continued quality of its branded products. We continue to focus resources on building trusting and transparent relationships with key suppliers. Recently, Alfred Dunhill Ltd has undergone a consolidation of its supply chain, centralising our supply chain network in Italy, which increases our ability to manage processes and increases visibility of our supply chain operations.

Alfred Dunhill Limited’s CSR & Supply Chain Compliance Manager, reporting directly into the Quality & Technical Director, is responsible for ensuring the continuous development of policies and strategies to tackle modern slavery and labour issues, increasing the scope of work to hidden areas deeper within the supply chain, and creating a more robust governance and accountability framework.

Our Policies and Processes

When taking on new product suppliers, Alfred Dunhill Limited undertakes due diligence that is carried out by the supply chain and procurement teams within the business. As part of this process, suppliers are required to sign our terms and conditions of purchase and other documents including the Richemont Group Supplier Code of Conduct (“Code of Conduct”).

A full copy of our Code of Conduct for the financial year ending 31 March 2021, is available here: Richemont Supplier Code of Conduct 2022

The Group is currently in the process of revising our Code of Conduct to address further human rights topics, in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s due diligence guidelines. The revised version of our Code of Conduct should be finalised and ready to issue to new and current suppliers imminently.

The Group and its Maisons’ relationships with all business partners – suppliers, subcontractors, and business partners – are based on fair, honest and mutually rewarding relationships contributing to high quality standards of product and services. The Group therefore requires that all its business partners adhere to robust ethical values and ensure the compliance of their own operations against the Richemont’s 39 Principles outlined in the Supplier Code of Conduct.

Alfred Dunhill Limited continues to work in partnership with an accredited compliancy verification company to facilitate a robust social audit programme aimed at monitoring the labour conditions in our product supply chains and ensuring compliance against the Group’s Code of Conduct (as above) over a three-year rolling format. Monitoring and verification activities are carried out throughout our finished goods suppliers and where feasible, at their subcontractor sites.

Alfred Dunhill Limited’s due diligence processes, including social audits, highlight a risk of slavery and/or human trafficking, or any other non-compliance with the Code of Conduct, we will assess such non-compliance on a case-by-case basis and take appropriate remedial action.

During the financial year ending 31 March 2021, Alfred Dunhill continues to source directly from nonproduct suppliers. We request these suppliers to adhere to our Group’s Code of Conduct and we continue to assess those suppliers who have not returned a signed confirmation of compliance, to ensure they have sufficient processes and policies in place to satisfy us that they are operating to the highest standards.

Impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic (“Covid-19”)

Alfred Dunhill Limited has taken appropriate precautions to ensure the safety and protection of all its employees and external third parties encountering its employees, in accordance with Government guidelines. Some of these precautions include encouraging employees to work from home (unless the nature of their work meant that they were unable to do so), controlling movement of employees to and from the office, temperature checking employees upon arrival at the office and wearing PPE and social distancing when working in the office. Alfred Dunhill Limited’s cleaning service providers were also required to implement a more rigorous cleaning routine within the office to ensure cleanliness and hygiene remains at a high standard.

Covid-19 has caused some disruption to Alfred Dunhill Limited’s Social Audit Programme annual plan. However, Alfred Dunhill Limited looks to resume normal levels in 2022 and is confident that an appropriate level of due diligence will be achieved.

Alfred Dunhill Limited continues to review the changing Covid-19 landscape to ensure that the measures taken remain appropriate for the health and safety of its employees and third-party organisations within our supply chain, to avoid the risk of exposing them to conditions that make them vulnerable to modern slavery.

Alfred Dunhill Limited has an extensive range of global supplier relationships.

When taking on new product suppliers, Alfred Dunhill Limited undertakes due diligence that is carried out by the supply chain and procurement teams within the business.

A full copy of the Code of Conduct, which was updated in 2017, is available at: https://www.richemont.com/images/csr/2017/supplier_code_of_conduct_2017.pdf.

Alfred Dunhill Limited also works in partnership with an accredited compliancy verification company in order to carry out audits of our suppliers. Our suppliers are audited at least every 3 years. The audits cover manufacturing sites including sub-contractors. We audit suppliers according to the SEDEX Member Ethical Trade audit formats which assess the suppliers on Health & Safety, Labour Standards, Environment and Business Ethics in line with our Supplier Code of Conduct.

In the event that Alfred Dunhill Limited's due diligence processes, including audits, highlight a risk of slavery and/or human trafficking, or any other non-compliance with the Code of Conduct, we will assess such non-compliance on a case by case basis and take appropriate remedial action.

We endeavour to trade only with those suppliers who comply with the Code of Conduct or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance. Arrangements with suppliers in material or persistent breach will be terminated.

We also recognise the risk that modern slavery can exist within our non-product supply chain.

During the financial year ending 31 March 2018, Alfred Dunhill continues to source directly from non-product suppliers. We request these suppliers to adhere to our Group's Code of Conduct and we continue to assess those suppliers who have not returned a signed confirmation of compliance, in order to ensure they have sufficient processes and policies in place to satisfy us that they are operating to the highest standards.

All relevant employees (current and new) working for Richemont Group's UK subsidiaries are required to complete this module and it is accessible via our learning management system.

We recognise that no supply chain is without risk of modern slavery and it is our responsibility to ensure we understand these risks and work together with our suppliers to mitigate them.

Our Business

Alfred Dunhill Limited engages with carefully selected suppliers to manufacture its products and/or provide relevant services to the company. We sell our branded products either through Alfred Dunhill Limited's own-managed points of sales or through authorised wholesale accounts.

As part of the Richemont Group ("Group"), Alfred Dunhill Limited adheres to Group policies, procedures and standards relating to the management of its supply chain and its general business conduct. Details of the Group's business governance and corporate social responsibility policies can be found at: https://www.richemont.com/corporate-social-responsibility/governance-ethics/policies.html.

Our Supply Chain Relationships

Alfred Dunhill Limited strives to maintain good and lengthy relationships with suppliers based on the principle of fair, open, honest and ethical dealings at all times whilst ensuring continued quality of its branded products.

Alfred Dunhill Limited has an extensive range of global supplier relationships. We source finished products from approximately 70 suppliers, of which over 60% have been supplying Alfred Dunhill Limited for more than 3 years; more than 20% of these companies have been supplying Alfred Dunhill Limited for more than 10 years. 85% of our suppliers are based in Western Europe

Our Policies and Processes

When taking on new product suppliers, Alfred Dunhill Limited undertakes due diligence that is carried out by the supply chain and procurement teams within the business. As part of this process, suppliers are required to sign our terms and conditions of purchase and other documents including the Richemont Group Supplier Code of Conduct ("Code of Conduct").

The Code of Conduct covers the following areas:

  • No forced employment — not using forced labour and not using employment where terms are not voluntary;
  • Healthy and safe working conditions — providing a healthy and safe working environment in accordance with applicable laws and regulations;
  • Wages and working hours — complying with local legislation on minimum wages, working hours and employee benefits;
  • Freedom of association — allowing workers to associate with lawful and peaceful workers' associations;
  • No discrimination — net subjecting people to discrimination based on factors including ethnicity, age, religion and sexual orientation, amongst others;
  • No child labour — net employing people under the age of 15 or younger than the age for completing compulsory education;
  • No use of corporal punishment — and not subjecting people to harassment, violence or intimidation;
  • Responsible environmental management — fully complying with locai legislation, industry regulations and the Richemont Environmental Code of Conduct;
  • Grievance Procedure and Whistleblowing — allowing workers to report actual or suspected misconduct without fear of reprisal.

A copy of the Code of Conduct is available at: https://www.richemont.com/images/csr/2015/supplier_code_of_conduct_2015.pdf.

Alfred Dunhill Limited also works in partnership with a compliancy verification company who is an AAG member of SEDEX. This company utilises auditors with SociaI Accountability Certification SA8000 accreditation in order to carry out audits of our suppliers.

We have a rolling auditing plan where our suppliers are audited at least every 3 years. The audits cover manufacturing sites including sub-contractors. We audit suppliers according to the SMETA 4 Pillar audit which assesses the suppliers on Health & Safety, Labour Standards, Environment and Business Ethics in line with our Supplier Code of Conduct.

In the event that Alfred Dunhill Limited's due diligence processes, including audits, highlight a risk of slavery and/or human trafficking, or any other non-compliance with the Code of Conduct, we will assess such non-compliance on a case by case basis and take appropriate remedial action.

We endeavour to trade only with those suppliers who comply with the Code of Conduct or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance. Arrangements with suppliers in material or persistent breach will be terminated.

We also recognise the risk that modem slavery can exist within our non-product supply chain.

During the financial year ending 31 March 2017, we asked all our non-product suppliers to confirm in writing their compliance with the Act, as well as that of their sub-contractors. Out of approximately 100 suppliers contacted, over half have so far returned a signed confirmation of compliance. We will continue to assess whether those suppliers who have not returned a signed confirmation of compliance have sufficient processes and policies in place to satisfy us that they are operating to the highest standards required by us and the Group and in any event in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

During the next financial year we will assess the risk of our non-product supply chain to further understand the risk of modem slavery and to take steps to mitigate this risk where possible.

Our Training

The Group and Alfred Dunhill Limited continue to take steps to increase employee awareness and engagement regarding slavery and human trafficking issues. Richemont's Corporate Social Responsibility Guidelines ("Guidelines"), which defines the standards the Group expects its managers, employees and suppliers to uphold, specifically articulate the Group's zero-tolerance policy regarding forced labour.

A copy of the Guidelines can be found at: https://www.richemont.com/images/csr/2012/extract_corporate_social_responsbilitiy_guidelines_based_on_jul08_version.pdf

As part of our commitment, this year we delivered presentations on supply chain compliance to Supply Chain and Product Development departments. These presentations reinforced the importance of awareness for potential Labour Standards and Health & Safety non-compliance issues when visiting suppliers.
