Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

INTRODUCTION FROM THE MANAGING DIRECTORS

Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibly to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Our staff is expected to report concerns and management are expected to act upon them.

ORGANISATION’S STRUCTURE

Sunpower Groups Holdings Ltd is a manufacturer and importer of electronic and lighting equipment and based in the United Kingdom.

OUR SUPPLY CHAIN

Our supply chain includes the sourcing of product related to electronics and lighting. The Majority of our providers are located in the Far East.

OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain 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 chain.

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

We build long standing relationships with our suppliers and make clear our expectations of business behaviour. With regards to national or international supply chains, we will only enter into business relations with entities that have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes. We expect each entity in the supply chain to, at least, adopt ‘one-up’ due diligence on the next link in the chain. It is not practical for us (and every other participant in the chain) to have a direct relationship with all links in the supply chain, ultimately leading to the utility generator. We have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking and we expect all those in our supply chain (including subcontractors) to comply with our values without exception.

OUR EFFECTIVENESS IN COMBATING SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:

  • Completion of House Audits by Area Managers and Business Development Managers.
  • Use of labour monitoring.
  • Level of communication and personal contact with next link in the supply chain and their understanding of, and compliance with, our expectations.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our group’s slavery and human trafficking statement.
