Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Our policies on modern 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 Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Gallagher have a zero tolerance approach to modern slavery. We are committed to act with integrity and ethically in all our business dealings and relationships. This will be controlled by robust processes ensuring modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our business or supply chains.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains include the sourcing of materials principally related to the civil engineering & construction industry. They play a major part in supporting our business, We therefore expect a sharing of our values and the same due diligence in the prevention of modern slavery.
We are a civil engineering / groundworks / building contractor, supplier of aggregates, supplier of ready mix concrete, recycling & landfill, property developer & manager of investment property. Gallagher Group is the parent company of a wholly owned subsidiary. The group has its head office in the UK and all trade is undertaken within the UK. The group has an annual turnover in excess of £180m.
Due diligence processes for modern slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk:
- We run our business with skilled managers to ensure optimum control of the work environment
- Where possible we build long standing relationships with local suppliers and customers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour
- With regards to national or international supply chains, our point contact is preferably with a UK company or branch and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes. We expect each entity in the supply chain to, at least, adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain. It is not practical for us (and every other participant in the chain) to have a direct relationship with all links in the construction industry
- We have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers
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 regular training to relevant members of staff including Directors. All Directors and Senior Staff have been briefed on the subject.
