Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
At Extra Energy, we are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking. We recognise that we have a responsibility to ensure there is no modern slavery and human trafficking in both our business and our supply chain.
1. OUR BUSINESS
We are a privately owned company based in Birmingham, UK. The principle activity of the company is the supply of gas and electricity to domestic and small and medium enterprises (SME).
2. OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
Our supply chain includes a wide variety of suppliers for the procurement of goods and services to support the business. Within the energy industry we are obligated to use specific reputable industrywide suppliers in a number of instances. We consider our supply chain to be relatively simple and have limited risk in relation to the potential for exposure of modern slavery and human trafficking but nevertheless we remain vigilant.
3. OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment 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 is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
We expect the same high standards from all our contractors, suppliers and other business partners and typically mandate compliance with applicable laws, including those relating to working practices and employee protection in our supply chain contracts to achieve this.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we plan to provide training to relevant colleagues who are involved in the procurement process. The UK management committee have also been briefed on the subject.
We encourage all our employees to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery at the earliest stage.
We recognise the importance of this issue to our business and will seek to continuously improve the company’s policies and procedures to mitigate this risk in the year ahead.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 28th December 2016.
