Modern Slavery Act 2015 – Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
The UK Modern Slavery Act of 2015 requires commercial organisations with a consolidated global turnover greater than £36m to provide disclosure concerning their efforts to address the issues of slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains for each financial year. The disclosures are intended to set out what an organisation has done to prevent modern slavery in their own business and supply chain.
McAvoy Group Ltd is an Offsite Modular Construction Company offering services to a range of clients in the UK and Ireland. Our Supply Chain includes companies who supply raw materials, transport, shipping of materials & products, specialist trade contractors that undertake supply and fix contracts, labour-only subcontractors and specialist professional organisations that provide a range of services across the portfolio of projects and services that we deliver for our clients.
McAvoy recognises that slavery and human trafficking can occur in many forms.
McAvoy is committed to developing and improving systems and processes to avoid complicity in human rights violations related to our own operations and that of our supply chain. Therefore, throughout this disclosure we use the terms “slavery and human trafficking” to encompass various forms of labour exploitation. We believe that working in partnership with our clients, community stakeholders and supply chain in a sustainable way enables us to find practical, safer methods of ethical trading free from slavery and human trafficking.
We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. We undertake reasonable and practical steps to ensure that our standards are being implemented throughout our supply chain and that relevant legislation and regulations are complied with.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the McAvoy Group Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the financial year ending 31 October 2016.
