Slavery & Human Trafficking Transparency Statement
Financial year ended 31st December 2018
This Statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (‘Act’) and sets out the steps that Innserve Limited (‘Innserve’) and associated companies (Serviced Dispense Equipment Limited, Old Innserve Limited, Innserve Technical Solutions Limited) have taken during the previous financial year to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not operating within either our own business or its supply chains.
Innserve is an established and independent outsource service provider that specialises in the supply, installation and maintenance of beer and soft drinks dispense systems. We have a zero tolerance policy to slavery and human trafficking.
Our Supply Chain
The majority of Innserve’s suppliers are UK or European companies. As Workers’ rights are legally protected within those regions, we have a high level of confidence that those people employed by our direct suppliers are not being exploited.
An internal review of our supplier base has presented us with no immediate concerns.
However, we do recognise that some component parts are sourced by our direct suppliers outside of Europe, and so expect that our suppliers will demonstrate a high level of ethical due diligence when selecting their suppliers. In order to mitigate that risk, we have sought written confirmation from all existing suppliers, and confirm with potential new suppliers that they are compliant with the requirements of the Act.
In the event that suppliers fail to demonstrate their commitment to our ethical policies, Innserve will reconsider its future relationships with them.
This statement has been approved by our Executive Committee and communicated to those managers responsible for our interactions with suppliers. Those staff who come into frequent or regular contact with suppliers are required to be vigilant, and recognise the risks and danger signs surrounding slavery and human trafficking.
We hereby record our commitment to a programme of continuous review to identify and address any issues arising, both in our own business and its supply chains.
