Impact of modern slavery
ACU’s strong commitment and approach to anti modern slavery measures acknowledges the indivisible link between social, economic and environmental sustainability, and our university’s future.
We prioritise these important areas not only because they are deeply embedded in our Catholic mission to honour the dignity of each being and to care for our common home, but simply because it is the right thing to do.
As a Catholic university, we uphold our obligation to the communities we serve, including our students, by leaving things in a better position than how we found them. For this reason, we are dedicated to upholding the dignity of every individual and community with any connection to the university’s supply chain.
Our commitment and vision
The ACU Modern Slavery Statement 2022 commits us to consolidate the actions commenced in 2020 and 2021, and to continue to work with associated entities, industry groups and specialist anti-slavery service providers to help understand and remediate slavery activities in global supply chains where they impact the operations of ACU.
In addition to fulfilling our obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2018 (Cth), ACU is also committed to training staff on modern slavery vulnerabilities and activities.
