Modern slavery statement
Modern Slavery Statement
This statement is made pursuant to 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Bircroft Private Limited has taken and is continuing to take 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. Bircroft Private Limited 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.
We are commercial real estate finance brokers. Our head office is based in the UK and we source real estate finance from a national and international supply chain.
Given the nature of what we do we believe that there is a very low risk of slavery or human trafficking having a connection with our business activities, but there is no room for complacency in that belief so we have taken the steps detailed below.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
1. Human Rights Policy. Bircroft Private Limited is committed to developing an organizational culture which implements a policy of support for internationally recognised human rights and seeks to avoid complicity in human rights abuses. We support the principles contained within the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the ILO Core Conventions on Labour Standards.
2. Ethical and Sanctions Policy. This policy obligation to protect fundamental human rights and to respect the diversity of all cultures.
3. Anti-slavery statement. This statement sets out the organisation’s stance on modern slavery and explains how employees can identify any instances of this.
6. Code of business conduct. This code explains the manner in which we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.
