SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT

Introduction
ABC+ Warranty & Architects Certificate are committed to acquiring goods and services for its customers without causing harm to others. In so doing, we are committed to supporting the UK Government’s Action Plan to implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

This Statement is designed to satisfy the requirements of Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, by informing our employees, suppliers, other third party partners and customers about the Company and its Statement with respect to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labour and labour rights violations in its supply chains.

Although, as a business, ABC+ Warranty and Architects Certificate turns over far less than the threshold for businesses required to publish a statement under the Act, the Company considers that our customers’ spend through its supply agreements warrants a statement on the risks inherent in our supply chains and the steps we are taking to address them, in line with the Company’s practices in sustainable and responsible procurement.
