Esplanade Limited – Modern Slavery Act 2015
In accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this statement provides the measures that Esplanade Limited (“Esplanade”) has taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking from occurring within our business and supply chains.
Esplanade operates a motor retail site in the Isle of Wight. Esplanade directly employs in excess of 50 people.
Esplanade has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we expect the same high standards from our suppliers.
In order to prevent slavery and human trafficking Esplanade prohibits all areas of its business and supply chains from using slavery and human trafficking of any kind.
Our main protection against slavery is to ensure that we fully comply with minimum wage legislation. We also require this of our contractors. We also ensure that all Esplanade employees have the right to work in the U.K. Esplanade also requires that all contractors only employ staff with the right to work in the U.K.
The principal areas in which there is a risk of human trafficking and slavery are those related to our supply chains. Esplanade sources and sells products and parts from a broad range of suppliers. To ensure that external supply chains comply with this policy Esplanade requires that the business practices and supply chains of each supplier are in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Esplanade monitors compliance by suitable levels of due diligence according to the level of risk which we assesses of the potential for human trafficking and/or modern slavery.
Any instances of non-compliance of which Esplanade is made aware will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Remedial action will be taken and tailored to suit the circumstances. Esplanade will only trade with those who fully comply with this statement. If Esplanade is not satisfied with the steps being taken towards full compliance, it will temporarily suspend its business with that supplier (to the extent permitted under contract or by law). The ultimate sanction for the continual failure to comply will be for Esplanade to cease to trade with that supplier (to the extent as permitted under contract or by law).
Esplanade will quickly and thoroughly investigate any claim or indication that any area of its business or supply chains is engaging in human trafficking or slave labour.
This statement has been approved by Esplanade and will be updated from time to time.
