This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that GGR Group has taken and constitutes the Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year. Our aim is to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. GGR Group has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
The Group is a supplier of mini cranes, vacuum lifters and related lifting solutions, for either rental or purchase.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
- Code of Ethical Conduct. This policy sets out the organisation’s stance on modern slavery and explains how the policy is communicated.
- Recruitment procedure. We operate a robust recruitment procedure, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
GGR Group operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence may include an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offences relating to modern slavery.
Our procurement/buying teams are made aware and understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.
Our performance indicators
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:
- No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
