This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by Sky Betting and Gaming and its relevant group companies to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
The Sky B&G Group (as defined below) has a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery of any kind within our operations and supply chain. We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns, using the appropriate reporting channels, and management are expected to act upon them.
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) and has been adopted by Cyan Blue Topco Limited and all its subsidiaries, associated entities and branch offices ("Sky B&G Group") as our statement on slavery and human trafficking for the financial year ending 30 June 2017. This anti-slavery statement (the “Statement”) sets out our approach for ensuring that we have effective systems and controls implemented to prevent modern slavery taking place in our business or in any of our supply chains.
The Act creates offences in respect of slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. We are committed to combatting all such forms of modern slavery and carrying out our business in a fair, honest, ethical and open manner.
We are implementing an on-going process to review our business and supply chain, this review will allow us to confirm, to the best of our knowledge, if there is any form of modern slavery in our business and supply chain.

Our Supply Chain
Given the nature of Sky B&G Group’s business, we consider that the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain is low. However, we are not complacent and will be taking active steps to prevent suppliers, agents, consultants and contractors throughout our supply chain from engaging in modern slavery. We most commonly contract with suppliers for operations and information technology contracts. We intend to ensure that these suppliers are required to agree to a statement through our Terms and Conditions which makes clear that the supplier complies with the Act.
We will not support or do business knowingly with a company involved in slavery or human trafficking.
Our employees are subject to and benefit from a wide range of polices which cover equality and diversity, learning and development, and numerous compliance policies. The policies and frameworks that we have in place assist us to limit the risk of modern slavery in the workplace and encourage all staff to work ethically.
We also operate a whistleblowing policy to provide the ability for employees to raise any concerns they have in the workplace and for those concerns to be investigated.
The Sky B&G Group will conduct an annual review of this Statement.
