Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Lakepoint is committed to ensuring there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our anti-slavery and human trafficking statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due Diligence processes

Our process to identify and manage risks of slavery and human trafficking are:

  • We build long standing relationships with our suppliers and subcontractors and ensure they fully understand their obligations.
  • We seek to limit engaging with suppliers outside of the UK –although have little need to – and wherever possible seek to do business with the UK operation of any relevant international supplier.
  • We have under taken a risk assessment of our supply chain in respect of slavery and human trafficking and have identified where extra scrutiny is required.
  • We have commenced a review of our contractual arrangements to ensure that procurement contracts and related documents include prohibitions in respect of slavery and human trafficking and require compliance with the legislation.
  • We have well established systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.

Training

We have made our procurement staff aware of their obligations under the Modern Slavery Act.
All directors have been briefed on the legislation.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Lakepoint’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 30 April 2021.
