To Be Read In Conjunction With Our Modern Slavery Policy
Our business, Sam’s Gutters Limited is committed to combating slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending 25th March 2023.
As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:
- We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
- We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.
To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain, and we confirm the following:
- We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed.
- We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business.
- Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking.
Further details about our business and supply chain are provided below.
- Our business is a roofing and roofline, clearing, repairing and replacement company.
- Our business structure is one office with mobile sub-contractors.
- We have three directors with four managers and all the employees and sub-contractors report to those managers.
We operate in the following countries:
Our supply chain is as follows:
We use authorised and vetted suppliers for the stock we use for repairs and replacements and every year, whilst reviewing our Modern Slavery Policy and Statement, we ensure that the suppliers we use have fully accountable, responsible and ethical policies in their factories, work places and throughout the sourcing of their materials and all the work that they carry out.
This year we have carried out our due diligence checks on all of our suppliers on Monday 24th April 2023. We carried out this investigation using their company reports and their Modern Slavery Statement that is available online.
We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others.
We do not believe that our supply chain is one of those sectors.
Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking.
The person in our business responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking is: KATY HABIBIAN, CAO, SAM’S GUTTERS LIMITED
We also encourage all employees to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
