Modern Slavery Statement

We take care to make sure that we comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015

We're committed to making sure that we comply with our legal and regulatory responsibilities, including the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We take care to make sure that slavery and human trafficking does not exist in any part of L&Q's business or supply chain.

This statement is made under section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Compliance within L&Q

As an employer we're committed to paying the living wage to all our staff and we regularly review our terms of employment to ensure that they comply with all relevant legislation.

Checking compliance of our suppliers

We manage projects and procurements where services and products are sourced from suppliers. Most of these products are not sourced by us directly but are sourced by our contracted suppliers of services, goods and works.

As an organisation that does not wish to work with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking in any part of its operations, we are taking the following steps:

  • We require new suppliers to declare that they are not involved in slavery or human trafficking and have not been subject to any investigation in connection with any offence involving slavery or human trafficking
  • We include provisions in our template contract documentation requiring our suppliers to take appropriate steps to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in their supply chains

We'll assess any evidence of non-compliance and will take appropriate remedial action.

We'll only trade with those who fully comply with this statement and the terms of our contracts or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance.
