This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes McLaren Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement, setting out the steps the group has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chain or in any part of our business.
Slavery and forced labour can take many forms, including human trafficking or child labour. This statement sets out McLaren Group’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks. As part of the construction industry, the company recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to preventing slavery and human trafficking.
The company is absolutely committed to maintaining and improving systems and processes to prevent human rights violations related to our own operations and those of our supply chain.
The McLaren Group of companies operates in construction, property investment and development, in the UK and United Arab Emirates. It has permanent offices in Brentwood, London, Birmingham, Reading, Manchester and Dubai.
The Company is committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to, as far as practical, ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in the company or our supply chain. We comply with all legislation – importantly the Immigration Act 2015 – to ensure we prevent any illegal working.
Our supply chain comprises the engagement of sub-consultant and sub-contractor organisations to carry out works and services on our construction sites, as well as the sourcing of materials and manufactured products. We play an active role in supplier development and have adopted various means to clearly communicate our expectations of suppliers.
As part of our work to identify and mitigate risk:
We expect each entity in the supply chain to carry out due diligence on the next link in the chain, taking ownership for this to ensure compliance. It is not practical for McLaren (and every other participant in the chain) to have a direct relationship with all links in the supply chain.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain and our business, we provide training to relevant employees. All directors have been briefed on the subject.
The Board of Directors delegates the approval of this statement on its behalf to the Group Commercial Director of the company.
