SAINT-GOBAIN UK AND IRELAND RELEASES MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT

This document gives an overview of our approach, actions and the training and processes in place to reduce the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains and our businesses

Our Modern Slavery Statement 2018 gives an overview of our approach, actions and the training and processes in place to reduce the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains and our businesses.

Construction has been recognised as a high-risk industry, second only to the sex industry, for modern slavery. This is for several reasons;

  • High reliance on migrant labour
  • Fragmented Supply Chain
  • Escalating use of agency labour
  • High proportion of low-skilled workers
  • Lack of transparency

 

"Saint-Gobain UK is committed to working with others to take steps to eradicate modern slavery in our supply chain.

Construction has the second highest rate of modern slavery and we have a duty to play our part in helping to address this.

I am delighted that we have now trained more than 280 staff to recognise the signs of modern slavery and to share details of our activities in this area in 2018.

This statement was put before the board and approved on the 26th June 2019."

Mike Chaldecott, CEO Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland
