Modern Slavery Policy

Sustainable Schoolwear and Worn Up are committed to limiting the risk of modern slavery occurring. We have implemented a Modern Slavery policy and taken steps to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2018 and to improve transparency in our supply chains.


Modern Slavery involves the serious exploitation of workers. This could include threats or deceptive measures to strip victims of their freedom. The Australian Modern Slavery Act (2018) defines slavery into eight areas:

  • Human Trafficking

  • Slavery

  • Servitude

  • Forced Marriage

  • Forced Labour

  • Debt Bondage

  • Deceptive Recruiting

  • Child Labour

    SSW and Worn Up is committed to our responsibility as a global citizen to assist in abolishing modern slavery.

    Both businesses have:

  • made it a priority to ensure our staff are aware of this important issue through training

  • has conducted a risk assessment on our top 10 suppliers and has deemed them `low risk

  • will continue to monitor current suppliers and will ensure future major suppliers are aware of their obligations.
