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. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to ensuring slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
We have appointed a compliance officer who is responsible for monitoring the relevant policies and the board of directors of Motorpoint Group Plc has overall responsibility for ensuring this policy and its implementation complies with its legal and ethical obligations.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we communicate directly with our supply chain partners by:
- Mapping our supply chains and identifying potential risk areas.
- Regularly monitoring potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Protecting whistleblowers (through our Whistleblowing policy).
Supplier adherence to our values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking and expect all our business partners to share this approach. A copy of this statement is available on the company website for our business partners to inspect. We currently do not engage with suppliers in high risk areas. However, if our risk assessment informs us that this situation has changed, we will introduce practices such as including our policy with all supply chain agreements and ask suppliers to confirm that they undertake business in a way that is consistent with that policy.
Our compliance team consists of involvement from the following departments:
- Human Resources
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 to our staff as necessary.
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 2016.
