This statement is made by Lyst Ltd, including Group companies, (hereinafter referred to as the “Company” or “Lyst”) pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and comprises the Company’s anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 March 2022.
This statement sets out Lyst’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains. Lyst takes a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in both our business and our supply chain.
Our mission is to be the world’s largest global shopping platform. We operate from headquarters in London with over 200 employees in order to deliver a personalised shopping experience on our web and app platforms to customers all over the world. As at 31 March 2022, Lyst had over 182 million fashion users, able to shop from over 9 million items from over 25 thousand brands.
Lyst does not design, manufacture, control pricing, store or ship goods itself. However, we are conscious of the fashion industry context in which we operate and our responsibilities within our supply chains regarding preventing slavery and human trafficking.
We work with over 25 thousand brands whom we refer to as our “partners”. These partners are located in countries across the globe, but mainly in the USA, UK and Europe. The main service we provide to our partners is through our online fashion shopping platform, facilitating the sale of fashion products by our partners on our platform.
We have numerous suppliers who support the running of our business including, but not limited to, marketing, office management, professional services and technology services who support our systems, platforms and business functionality.
As we operate solely online, and as most of our workers are employed directly by us, we consider ourselves to be low risk.
Lyst is committed to conducting its business fairly, honestly and openly; ensuring that there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to addressing modern slavery throughout our supply chains. We require the same high standards from all our suppliers and business partners, expecting them to have the same standards throughout their own supply chains.
We have policies in place to ensure that we meet our responsibilities to respect and protect human rights, including discrimination and human rights; promoting diversity and inclusion; access to grievance remedies; access to and communication of information and data; safety, security and wellbeing and whistleblowing.
In particular, our recruitment policy is designed to ensure compliance with UK employment law and encourages staff to report any concerns related to the activities of the organisation or its supply chain. Our talent team manages all recruitment activities and only uses reputable employment agencies and job boards to source candidates.
To underpin our commitments, Lyst will undertake the following measures:
