Knauf Australia Modern Slavery Statement

Modern Slavery

At Knauf, we recognise the inherent dignity of all people and are committed to respect and promote human rights, including the rights of our employees, suppliers and the communities in areas where we operate. 

Our value of Menschlichkeit recognises the importance of treating people fairly and acting with social responsibility. One way we do this is by identifying and reducing the risk of modern slavery.

Since 2018, we have been working to strengthen our approach to assess and address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain in view of the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018. 

The Australian Government introduced the Modern Slavery Act in November 2018 to support the Australian business community to identify and address their modern slavery risks and maintain responsible and transparent supply chains. The ACT requires larger entities to provide an annual Modern Slavery Statement to the Australian Border Force for publication on a central online register. 

Our FY2022 modern slavery statement below outlines the actions we have taken to identify and address the risk of modern slavery practices in our operations and supply chains.
