Modern Slavery Statement

 

 THE LARKLFEET GROUP MODERN SLAVERY TRANSPARENCY STATEMENT 2017

This statement is made in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It explains our approach to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring in our business and our supply chains.

Our business and supply chain
The Larkfleet Group of Companies is an award-winning housebuilding and development company based in Bourne, Lincolnshire.

Our businesses have a focus on sustainability. We are a sustainable housebuilder, a major developer of sustainable energy projects, an investor in sustainability with focused R&D projects and a provider of energy-efficiency improvements for new and existing buildings.

We engage a multitude of contractors and subcontractors and take the issue of modern slavery and human trafficking very seriously.

Our position
We understand that this is a collaborative effort, which all companies, individuals, sole traders and partnerships should take part in. We will not allow modern slavery to occur in our business or in our supply chains.

What we do
We have procedures in place to prevent slavery and human trafficking and we require our suppliers to take positive steps to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not present in their supply chains. Our suppliers, employees and contractors have been informed of our position and their duty to report any instances which they encounter.

We now ask all of our supply chain to confirm that they take positive steps to eliminate modern slavery and human trafficking.

Ongoing process
We recognise that this is an ongoing process and we therefore take a risk based approach to modern slavery and human trafficking by educating our staff and our supply chain with what is expected of them.

Targets for 2018/19
• To continue to monitor and educate our staff and supply chain;
• To encourage all of our supply chain to confirm that they are taking positive steps to eliminate human trafficking and modern slavery;
• To undertake due diligence to ensure compliance with the Act;
• To continue to develop our approach to tackling the issue of Modern Slavery.

This statement was approved by Karl Hick who is the chief executive of the Larkfleet Group of companies.
