Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns and management are expected to act upon them.

OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
The Grosvenor Group uses a wide variety of national and local suppliers to source goods, services and equipment for the day to day running of its business. Specifically we work with a number of vehicle manufacturers, funders, motor dealerships and agencies. The directors recognise the importance of understanding the integrity of our supply chain and act with diligence when reviewing suppliers to ensure the risk of slavery and human trafficking is reduced throughout the organisation.
OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy 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. Our culture of good governance is underpinned by our zero tolerance to modern slavery and we expect the same attitude from all who work for us and those supplying to us.
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Where possible we build long standing relationships with suppliers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour in the form of Supplier Service Level Agreements.
We expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes. We expect each entity adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain. It is not practical for us to have a direct relationship with all links,
We have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.
MEASURING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE POLICY
At The Grosvenor Group we believe this statement makes it clear that our attitude to modern slavery is one of zero tolerance. We have not implemented any compliance indicators as any instance of modern slavery or human trafficking by a supplier would be considered to be a breach of the policy.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group's slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.
The statement was approved by The Grosvenor Group board of director’s on 5th November 2018.
