This statement is made in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) for the financial year ended 31/07/2019.
Emrose Insurance Brokers Ltd (Emrose) provides non-investment insurance services in the UK. We provide a range of consumer and commercial insurance products/solutions for our customers.
Our Procurement due diligence process observes our company’s aims and objectives when it comes to procuring goods and services. We have a zero tolerance of modern slavery and human trafficking in any form in our business and supply chains. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in our business dealings and relationships, and to maintain systems and controls designed to ensure modern slavery and human trafficking are taking place in our business or across our supply chains.
Our whistleblowing policy provides a mechanism for our employees and others working in our supply chain to report suspected breaches of our policies.
Emrose is not in an industry with a high risk of modern slavery. A risk based approach has been adopted to review supply chains that fall within industries that may carry a higher risk of modern slavery, for example by asking our suppliers to complete a self-assessment. Where our suppliers are required to publish their own statements in accordance with the Act, we will monitor the content of the statements published.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we carry out appropriate due diligence when engaging and working with suppliers, whilst also ensuring that the work undertaken is proportionate to the services provided and the risk involved.
We will review our existing business supply chains for the risks of slavery and human trafficking; review and revise as needed our procurement process; and disseminate relevant information as part of raising awareness training to relevant parts of our business.
