and forced labour. These crimes remove an individual’s freedoms in order to exploit them for
personal and/or financial gain.

against our ethics and Valli Forecourts Ltd and Ackworth Service Stations Ltd will not tolerate any
form of modern slavery and human trafficking within our business, as well as in our supply chains

main protection against slavery is to ensure that all business activity complies with minimum wage
legislation and that our internal recruitment processes are transparent and regularly reviewed. We

supply chains are engaging in human trafficking or slave labour. We will address failures by our
employees to adhere to our code and policies; this may involve disciplinary action, up to and
including termination of employment. Similarly, if a contractor or supplier fails to act in a manner
consistent with our expectations or their contractual obligations, we will work with them to address
our concerns. Any instances of non-compliance of which the companies are aware will be assessed
on a case by case basis. Remedial action will be taken and tailored to the circumstances.
