Modern slavery and human trafficking statement 2017
Modern slavery and human trafficking statement
This statement is made in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) for the financial year ended 31 May 2017.
It sets out the steps that all the companies under the control of Low Carbon Construction Management Limited (‘LCC’) have taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any parts of our business or supply chains.
LCC provides house building and construction services in the UK through its subsidiaries.
Our sustainable procurement policy is designed to manage modern slavery and human trafficking issues. It sets out our position of zero tolerance of modern slavery and human trafficking in any form in our business and supply chains. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in our business dealings and relationships, and to maintaining systems and controls designed to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our business or across our supply chain.
Our whistleblowing policy provides a mechanism for our employees and others working in our supply chain to report suspected breaches of our policies.
Supply chain risk
LCC is in an industry with a moderate risk of modern day slavery. A risk based approach has been adopted to review supply chains that fall within industries that may carry a higher risk of modern day slavery.
We always seek further assurance that suppliers are adhering to our procurement standards through completion of a self-assessment in relation to their supply chain or by utilising the services of Constructionline. Where suppliers are required to make their own statements in accordance with the Act, we will monitor the content of the statements published.
Due diligence processes
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we carry out appropriate due diligence when engaging and working with suppliers, whilst also ensuring that the work undertaken is proportionate to the services provided and the risk involved.
We will review our existing business and supply chains for the risks of slavery and human trafficking; review and revise as needed our procurement processes; and disseminate relevant information as part of awareness training to relevant parts of our business.
