Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
The statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps the Company has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our own operations and our supply chain.
Our Supply Chains
We purchase the majority of our fuel stocks from third party suppliers located in China. These are the major state owned enterprises including Sinopec, PetroChina and China National Aviation Fuels who adhere to the Chinese Government regulations which cover human rights issues including banning slavery and human trafficking.
Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain we will continue to strengthen our processes and procedures and:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chain
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains
- Monitor the potential risk areas in our supply chains
- Protect whistleblowers
Supplier Adherence to Our Values
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking and ensure our suppliers are only those which are in compliance with the requirements of the Chinese Government.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains we ensure our businesses provide training to our staff.
Our Effectiveness in Combating Slavery and Human Trafficking
Our employment laws, our direct employment practices, and wider Group policies and/or supplier standards ensure we adhere to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
