Popcorn Group is the parent company of various subsidiaries responsible for creating projects and artworks. This statement is made on behalf of Popcorn Group and its subsidiaries as required by the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”). The nature of our business means that annual turnover varies from year-to-year based on art and film production schedules, accordingly, in some years annual turnover is likely to be lower than the threshold prescribed under Section 54 of the Act; however, we are committed to operating our business in a manner which protects people from modern slavery, accordingly, we have detailed below the policies and procedures we have adopted to comply with our anti-slavery obligations in accordance with the Act.
Our primary place of business is the United Kingdom; however, if required for production purposes, we film in locations outside the United Kingdom, for example, within the EU.
We use various third-party suppliers for the company’s day-to-day business purpose, and, to provide production-specific services for our projects. We select our suppliers and partners carefully based upon their experience, expertise and their compliance with anti-bribery and anti-slavery laws. Where relevant, we incorporate industry-standard terms into our agreements which comply with industry best practice, for example, in the UK we hire production crews in line with PACT/BECTU terms.
We have various internal policies, including Health and Safety Policy, ‘Whistle Blowing’ Policy and codes of conduct for employees which cover various aspects of anti-slavery compliance. We regularly review our internal and external policies and implement new policies and update existing policies as required.
In accordance with the Act, this statement has been approved by the board of directors of Popcorn Group and its subsidiaries to the extent that this statement relates to the activities of those respective entities.
