Abacus Window Cleaning Ltd Modern Slavery Act Statement
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking whereby individuals are deprived of their freedom and are exploited for commercial or personal gain as defined in the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This statement sets out the steps that Abacus Window Cleaning Ltd and its subsidiaries have taken and are continuing to take, to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Abacus Window Cleaning has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.
Steps We Are Taking to Identify and Prevent Modern Slavery.
We are operating and developing a number of policies and procedures to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner.
We operate a supply chain policy and maintain a preferred supplier and subcontractor list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers and subcontractors before allowing them to become a preferred supplier or subcontractor.
Our modern slavery policy forms part of our contract with all suppliers and subcontractors and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy. We are working on identifying high risk suppliers/subcontractors and applying further checks on them to ensure compliance.
Our employee training is being developed to ensure understanding of the signs of modern slavery and what to do if there is suspicion that it is taking place within our supply chain.
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if no reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
