Our core values and principles are strongly ingrained in our culture and are reflected in many ways.
Health and wellbeing
The health and wellbeing of our employees is integral to our aspiration as an employer of choice and is consistent with the way we value the potential of each and every person. Our workplace provides many opportunities to promote a health-positive workplace through a range of simple programs that integrate with the other dimensions of the company.
Work Health Safety
Work heath safety (WHS) is a high priority for good performance. Our WHS Policy is based on our company values, business and human resource strategies and conforming to legislation. A Safety and Sustainability Group oversees all our sites and includes staff members representing all departments and senior management.
We take community service seriously and support many activities across a range of causes in ways that make a positive difference. Our staff seek out volunteer opportunities in the community and each of them is allowed 24 paid hours a year to work with charitable organisations of their choice.
We are committed to supplying print and related services that have been safely and ethically manufactured or sourced and reserve the right to decline to trade with suppliers that do not demonstrate this commitment. Having a Fair Trade Policy is a part of our commitment to sustainability which offers choice to our clients and staff, and creates an opportunity to communicate the company’s core values.
Inclusiveness and diversity
Our aims and commitment to staff are encapsulated in the Greater Family program which promotes activities throughout the company, as well as honouring the role of the family in their private and working lives.

Modern Slavery Act Statement
This statement outlines the actions undertaken by Finsbury Green Pty Ltd that are within the scope of The Modern Slavery Act 2018 in relation to activities undertaken to identify and mitigate the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking occurring in its supply chain or business.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Finsbury Green has zero tolerance to any form of modern slavery. We are strongly committed to playing our part in eradicating modern slavery by ensuring we act ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Finsbury Green is a leading Australian provider of print, managed services and logistics delivered with a high degree of expertise, flexibility and integrity.
Our internal policies ensure we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner which includes:
Finsbury Green is committed to maintaining a safe workplace that values equal opportunity and that is free from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Finsbury Green operates in a highly regulated environment and has robust policies and procedures concerning employment screening (including work eligibility checks), employment conditions and appropriate workplace behaviour.
Codes of conduct
Our policies define the objectives and rules that reflect our commitment to responsible, ethically and legally compliant behaviour from all employees and contractors.
Where there is concern regarding any unethical conduct within our business, including any forms of modern slavery, we strongly encourage our employees to report the concern so we may properly and quickly resolve the situation.
Finsbury Green’s procurement process involves over 300 suppliers across Australia. Based on the supply chain profile, the risk of modern slavery is considered to be relatively limited.
Finsbury Green works with a wide and varied network of suppliers to execute and support solutions that we design for customers. Supplier due diligence is a critical part of what we provide for our customers and essential for the security and performance of our own business.
All suppliers to Finsbury Green must go through our due diligence process at the on-boarding stage and are then subject to regular audits and reviews.
We ensure our Suppler Agreements are signed by each supplier as part of the on boarding process, with follow up to ensure our policies are adhered to. We also review supply chain contracts to ensure they contain the appropriate legislative requirements.
These audits are based on perceived risk with a tiered approach taken to ensure each supplier’s corporate social responsibilities are aligned with that of Finsbury Green and United Nations Global Compact, the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as the 1998 International Labour Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work in addition to full compliance with Australian legislation, including the Modern Slavery Act 2018.
If we find breaches of our code or the Modern Slavery Act within our supply chain, we investigate the issues in detail. We support companies in their efforts to comply with the legislation, in the event of a serious breach, termination of the supplier relationship is considered.
Key performance indicators
We will measure the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:
- No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
- Completing annual due diligence, where necessary on our supplier’s code of conduct.
We are committed to continually improving the way we educate and inform our employees about modern slavery. Going forward, we aim to:
- Further raise awareness across our procurement teams on indicators of modern slavery in the supply chain, and how best to respond and escalate any concerns identified.
- Continue to develop training for Finsbury Green employees to raise a general and consistent understanding of this subject, outlining what modern slavery is, how to identify it and what individuals should do if they suspect it is taking place within, or associated to our organisation.
This Modern Slavery Act Statement was approved by the Finsbury Green Board and will be updated annually.
