Modern Slavery

Johnson Matthey recognises that we are responsible for the impact of our business activities on the people who work for or with us and the people within the communities where we operate. We act on this responsibility by using our influence to promote and protect the human rights of all those we work with and alongside.

Johnson Matthey supports, and expects all our suppliers to support, the principles defined within the International Labour Organization Core Conventions, the United Nations (‘UN’) Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Following Royal Assent of the Modern Slavery Act on 26 March 2015, Johnson Matthey has worked to improve its approach to tackling modern slavery and increasing supply chain accountability.

Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Transparency Statement sets out how we are acting on this important issue and our plans to build on those actions going forward.

Johnson Matthey Plc’s Modern Slavery Statement for FY 2020/2021 is made on behalf of Johnson Matthey Plc and its group companies (including, but not limited to, Johnson Matthey Davy Technologies Limited, Johnson Matthey Precious Metals Limited, Macfarlan Smith Limited).
