Built By Damon does not knowingly engage with any suppliers that engage in the trafficking or exploitation of workers in any manner.

Built By Damon is committed to improving our processes, including development of due diligence checks and Supplier Management procedures for my supplier on-boarding procedure(s).

As part of improving Built By Damon’s Supplier Management and due diligence checks, Built By Damon aims to digitise the record keeping and ongoing management, ensuring the company has up to the date records for Governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC).
