Portview is a privately owned fit-out company. As a leader in our chosen market, our objective is to deliver excellent services for our clients, resulting in safe, fair and professional contracting services at all times. We recognise that the execution of our services involves labour being procured throughout our business and supply chains and understand that this entails the risk that modern slavery may take place. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business dealings and relationships, and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in either our own business, or in any of the businesses of our supply chains.
This Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy is designed to assist Portview in complying with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The policy gives workers, contractors and other business partners guidance on slavery and human trafficking and the measures taken by us to tackle slavery and human trafficking in its business and its supply chains. Our Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity and this is supported by our Code of Business Ethics.
We undertake all reasonable and practical steps to ensure that our standards are being implemented throughout the businesses of our suppliers and that relevant legislation and regulations are complied with. We will only trade with those who fully comply with this policy. This statement has been approved by our Board of Directors, who will review and update it as necessary on an annual basis. This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the financial year ending 2019.
