OUR SUPPLY CHAINS

Our supply chains include reputable companies who provide materials, services and people to assist us in our projects. We expect all of our partners in our industry to comply with all relevant legislation including The UK Modern Slavery Act, and this is part of our due diligence process in selecting suppliers. As we work closely and regularly with partner hotels we are always aware of the risks involved in that sector and work with reputable hotels.

OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We require all our employees and partners to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains, which we currently assess to be low risk given our high specification requirements.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, by using reputable suppliers and partners
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains on an ongoing basis
  • Protect whistle blowers.
TRAINING

We are proud of our core values which include:

  • ‘Do the right thing’; and
  • ‘Value People’.

We have an active Corporate Citizenship Programme and take training of our staff very seriously. To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training in particular to staff employed in sourcing suppliers as part of our onboarding process.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st December 2018.
