Organisation Structure

Supply Chain

Print Evolved deals with many leading paper merchanting companies with the majority of their products being made within the EU.

Risk Assessment

An assessment of slavery and human trafficking within our and other larger suppliers shows the risk to be extremely low. Our recruitment and employment practices operate within the laws of the United Kingdom and all direct employees undergo "right to work" checks. This includes verifying that they are eligible to work in the UK and are of an appropriate age. Agency staff are used from time to time and are only supplied from registered staff agencies. All employees are paid at or above the minimum wage.

The majority of the products that we sell are made from materials sourced via paper merchants who have bought from paper mills within the EU with some sourced from paper mills based in non-EU countries. All of these paper products are manufactured by leading global companies with robust ethical business practices. All our suppliers have to meet sustainability and social standards criteria as part of our supply agreements.

Ongoing Assessment and Due Diligence

During the 2017 – 2018 year, all suppliers must provide assurance that slavery and trafficking practices are not taking place within their own operations and supply chains. Any employee with concerns specific to slavery and trafficking should bring them to the attention of their line manager or contact the Managing Director.
