Modern Slavery Statement

Notre Dame opposes all forms of slavery and human trafficking, and is committed to taking steps to ensure that it does not occur in its operations or in its supply chains.

Notre Dame therefore requires, through contractual arrangements and procurement principles, that its suppliers comply with all legislation dealing with the prevention of modern slavery, including the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth) and the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (NSW), where they apply. Notre Dame also requires its supply partners to take reasonable steps to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in their supply chain or in any part of their business.

To make sure our own efforts are effective, our Finance Office has established and leads a Modern Slavery Project Group which includes representatives from within the University who are responsible for identifying and addressing key risks within Notre Dame’s supply chains. In addition to the work we have done in our own operations and supply chains, we have been active in our collaboration with other organisations to share knowledge and engagement initiatives, discuss approaches, and build on learnings to address this growing global issue.

Notre Dame continues to make an ongoing commitment to manage the risk of modern slavery and to ongoing collaboration to ensure we make actual and lasting change in this area.
