As a vehicle provider, Hexagon Leasing does not have an extensive range of local or international suppliers where modern slavery or human trafficking would generally be a material risk and none of our suppliers are key to our business success. The company is not required to publish a slavery and human trafficking statement as covered within Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 due to its size, however, we are committed 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 does not take place anywhere in our business or supply chains. We are currently in the process of reviewing our anti-slavery systems and controls to;
• Identify, assess and monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains; and
• Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
We are also now reviewing how we engage with our network of suppliers to ensure that they will comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“the Act”). Initially we will be focusing on reviewing our supply chains and businesses that fall within the criteria defined in the Act (that is those companies which
carry on business in any part of the UK and supply goods or services with a minimum annual turnover of £36 million) and also in jurisdictions where the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking is highest. Following this initial review we will continue to review our other supplier chains and continue to monitor all suppliers. As part of this process we are reviewing our Ethical Policy and intend to add a new Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. The Hexagon Leasing Board has overall responsibility for ensuring the new policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations and that all those under our control comply with it. This statement is made pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Act and has been approved by the Company’s Board of Directors.
