This statement is designed to satisfy the requirements of Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”), by setting out the approach of the Mac International to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour and labour rights violations in its supply chains.
We continue to take our responsibility to prevent modern slavery and trafficking within our supply chain seriously.

Our status, operations, and supply chain

Mac International is registered as a limited company under registration numbers 13656760 (England and Wales).

We work in many countries, connecting people with the United Kingdom through programmes and services in the English language, the arts and education.

Current Procurement policy and processes

Mac International follows UK procurement guidelines and ensures that all potential and incumbent suppliers are dealt with professionally, fairly and ethically and that we uphold the principles of sustainable procurement at all times. Our procedures also comply with UK law and address environmental management, health and safety and equality legislation.

Suppliers are evaluated on criteria including their approach to risk; environmental sustainability; health and safety; modern slavery and safeguarding.

We require our suppliers to maintain their standards while supplying us. We have a variety of channels both internally and externally facing which facilitate the raising of concerns over supplier behaviour.

Identifying and Managing we use a structured approach to ensure that the high-risk categories and countries are identified, and that relevant and proportionate due diligence is carried out to ensure that risk can be identified and appropriately managed.

Our standard contract and agreements include modern slavery and human trafficking undertakings. We expect our supply chain to respect and comply with all applicable laws, including The Act, and under our standard contracts Mac International reserves the right to terminate its arrangements with a supplier which is found to be in breach of The Act.

Social responsibility and human rights

Mac International is committed to respect for human rights and to acting in a socially responsible manner in our operations and programming.

All our work seeks to support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights and to ensure that our staff, offices and supply chains are not complicit in human rights abuses.

As part of our commitment to the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office Code of Conduct and our determination to address this issue of global importance, we are exploring joining the Ethical Trading Initiative.


We recognise the importance of ensuring all our staff understand how modern slavery manifests itself and how to report when it does.

Mac International is committed to continuous improvement in this area and will review and monitor and, where necessary, enhance our standards, policies and procedures, as well as improve the training and communications about The Act.
