Modern Slavery Act Statement for the financial year 1 January to 31 December 2018

Business and supply chain overview

Our policy on modern slavery and human trafficking

citizenM wants to do the right things for its guests, employees, business partners, the community and, where possible, those involved in its supply chains. Behaving appropriately and ethically in all of our dealings and under all circumstances is an essential part of this. No modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour will knowingly be permitted, supported or endorsed through our business or supply chain at any time. Our policy is to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

Steps taken to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our business or supply
chains

Employees

All our employees are required to comply with the citizenM Rules, which define desired attitudes and provide guidance on appropriate behavior within citizenM, and cover amongst other things our commitment to human rights. New employees receive the citizenM Rules as part of their immersion documentation. Furthermore, employees receive regular training on interpreting and understanding the citizenM Rules.

Suppliers

We expect our suppliers to commit to the fundamental principles underlying our citizenM Rules and to act in accordance with the spirit of the citizenM Rules.

We are implementing controls to ensure that we verify our suppliers’ compliance with such commitment thus helping to ensure that modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour is not taking place anywhere in our supply chain.

In 2018, we took steps to improve our overall Responsible Supply Chain and Procurement approach. As well as clearly communicating our expectations to our suppliers to adhere to the citizenM Rules, in 2018, we added an ESG assessment to our procedures. We partnered with EcoVadis, a supplier assessment platform, who actively help us to assess our suppliers on 21 ESG criteria. This includes evidence-based checks against globally recognized
human rights standards for slavery and human trafficking such as the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the United Nations Global Compact and ISO 26001. [In 2018, we initiated assessments on 12 strategic suppliers.

Reporting concerns

Employees and stakeholders are encouraged to raise a concern if they believe an issue is in violation of the law or not entirely in line with citizenM’s values or the citizenM Rules through our Speak Up Procedure. This includes concerns related to human rights and modern slavery.

Employees are encouraged to raise concerns first with a line manager, if it is impossible to do so, concerns can also be raised with citizenM’s local counsellors or citizenM’s confidential advisor. The confidential advisor can be
contacted at confidentialadvisor@citizenm.com. An employee or stakeholder who reports (suspected) misconduct in good faith will not suffer any detriment as a consequence of his or her report.


Looking forward

citizenM is focused on further developing our approach to human rights and combating modern slavery.

This statement is provided in compliance with s.54 Modern Slavery Act 2015 and has been approved by the board of directors of citizenM Holding B.V.
