Logicalis Group Limited recognises that modern slavery practices can have severe, wide-ranging and long-lasting impacts on stakeholders and is therefore committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its own business and within its supply chain and expects its suppliers to adhere to the same standards.

Structure of the organisation

Logicalis Group Limited is a subsidiary of Datatec plc and its ultimate parent company is Datatec Limited, a company incorporated in South Africa and listed on the JSE Limited, Johannesburg, South Africa. 

Logicalis Group Limited and its subsidiaries (the “Group”) work with a range of suppliers from major manufacturers and distributors of IT equipment and services to smaller organisations providing services or products.


As part of Group’s commitment to combating modern slavery, we have adopted The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, and in particular the sustainable supply chains: resources and practices detailed in the Responsible Business Alliance (formerly Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition) Code of Conduct (“The UN Principles”) (Code of Conduct 7.0 (

The UN Principles include obligations relating to the rights of individuals to freely choose employment, restrictions on the employment of young workers, prohibitions on excessive working hours, compliance with relevant laws relating to pay and benefits, humane treatment of workers and the prohibition of discrimination on grounds of race, colour, age, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity or national origin, disability, pregnancy, religious belief or union membership. The UN Principles expect us to require our next tier supply chain to comply with it too. 

We also comply with Datatec Code of Conduct which applies across the Logicalis Group. This requires us, among other things, to only do business with partners who share our ethical principles; to treat our employees with respect and fairness at all times; not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination and to source all products without unlawful discrimination and in a manner supportive of mutually beneficial, long-term relationships. We expect our suppliers to cascade these standards down their own supply chains. The Logicalis Code of Conduct includes whistleblowing procedures for reporting potential breaches, including modern slavery concerns. 

Regular reporting of any breaches of the Code of Conduct is completed by Logicalis Group, including any non-compliance with modern slavery legislative requirements. Any breaches reported will be advised to the Logicalis and Datatec ARCCs (Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee) along with the remedial actions undertaken. 

In addition, the Logicalis Group Social and Ethics Committee, continues to monitor the activities of the Group in areas such as social and economic development, good corporate citizenship, labour and employment, and the environment, health and public safety


As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we integrate modern slavery considerations into our supplier onboarding process and all affiliates are required to ensure that supplier contracts with new suppliers comply with our Code of Conduct. Furthermore, our affiliates are instructed to consider compliance with international laws, including those related to modern slavery, when evaluating potential suppliers.

Risk and compliance

The Group proactively evaluates the nature and extent of our exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in our supply chain. We consider that the risk of modern slavery occurring in our first-tier supply chain is low because most of our major suppliers are large, industry leading organisations that have adopted their own anti-slavery policies and procedures.


All Logicalis employees are required to complete an interactive online training course annually on our Code of Conduct, and to pass a test to show that they have understood the Code. The training course encourages employees to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery policies and gives details of our independent whistleblowing hotline.

Further actions

The Group continually takes steps to minimise the risk of incidents of modern slavery and/or human trafficking occurring by ensuring suppliers confirm that they have complied with our Code of Conduct, and where necessary conduct audits on smaller suppliers in the first-tier supply chain. We are committed to continuous improvement in our efforts to eradicate modern slavery from our supply chains. We will regularly review and update our policies, procedures, and risk assessment methodologies to ensure their effectiveness.
