Statement further to the Modern Slavery Act 2015
Modern slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour are unacceptable in a modern, twenty first century society. The trafficking of people around the world both thrives on the demand created by such practices, and serves to create opportunity for unscrupulous employers.
Aberla recognises that everyone in its business, and in its supply chains, has a duty to be alert to the risks, however slight, that modern day slavery presents. Staff are expected to report any concerns, and management are expected to act on those concerns.
Aberla is a renewable energy consultancy working with a wide range of clients – developers, commercial and domestic property owners, private investors and Local Authorities – to help identify opportunities for energy efficiencies.
Supplier Adherence to Aberla’s Values
Aberla has zero tolerance towards slavery and human trafficking. Aberla expects all those in its supply chains for materials, services and labour, to comply with its policies and values.
Aberla reviews its materials, services annually, and expects each member to confirm its adherence.
Aberla will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking.
In keeping with Aberla’s commitment to act with integrity in all its business dealings, many of the company’s existing policies are relevant in ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in any part of its business or supply chains.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015.
We will review this statement for suitability at least annually, and communicate it to all staff. We will also review it following any changes in legislation.
