The 2016 Global Slavery Index estimates that 45.8 million people are subject to some form of modern slavery in the world, and in the UK alone the survey estimates 11,700 victims of slavery. To help tackle this issue the UK Government introduced the Modern Slavery Act in October 2015. Beatson Building Supplies has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking. The policies we have in place along with our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking statement reflect our commitment to:
- Act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
- Enforce effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities ensuring that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
- Pay people fairly and properly for their work.
