Modern Slavery Statement
The University of Tasmania is committed to protecting and respecting human rights and has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking in all its forms.
The Australian Government’s landmark Modern Slavery Act (Cth) 2018 aims to change the way entities do business to reduce the risk that the goods and services we use every day are the product of modern slavery.
The Modern Slavery Act aims to support the Australian business community to identify and address their modern slavery risks and maintain responsible and transparent supply chains.
Increasing business awareness about modern slavery risks is an important step toward reducing modern slavery risks in the production and supply chains of Australian goods and services, and improving workplace practices.
The University recognises there are risks of modern slavery within its supply chains of goods and services it buys. University staff are working to further improve the University’s approach to combating modern slavery within its operations.
Annually, the University publishes a Modern Slavery Statement.
