This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps we have taken to ensure that our business as well as our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking during the financial year ending December 2020.
Terberg Environmental Group Limited (TRRG) is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking occurring in any of its corporate activities, as well as seeking to ensure that our supply chains are also free from such practices.
We ensure that our suppliers are aware of our procedures and take appropriate measures to ensure that our suppliers adhere to the same high standards.
This statement is published internally to raise awareness of this issue and the Company’s commitment to preventing any instances occurring. Employees are encouraged to contact HR in confidence should they have any concerns to raise in relation to Modern Slavery or Human Trafficking.
Our Organisational Structure and Operations
TRRG, part of the Terberg Environmental Group, has manufactured precision-made vehicles since 1907. Our experience and expertise allow us to produce pioneering vehicles fully tailored to the needs of our clients. We manufacture and carry out service and maintenance work in numerous locations throughout the World.
Nature of our Supply Chains
We have various direct and indirect suppliers across our operations. Our key suppliers are based in the UK and mainland Europe with a small percentage in China/Far East. We purchase components and materials including engine and drivetrain, steel fabrications & castings, lighting, electrical & electrical wiring, hydraulics, and plastics/rubber.
The Company undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly reviews its existing suppliers.
If suppliers are found to have substandard practices, we will take steps to ensure improvement including providing advice to suppliers and requiring them to implement action plans. We will invoke sanctions against suppliers that fail to improve their performance in line with an action plan or who seriously violate our standards, including the termination of the business relationship.
Recruitment and Agency Workers Policy
Our Recruitment Policy details our procedures for bringing employees into the business in line with all relevant legislation and our internal Equality Policy. We only use specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour and always verify the practices of any new agency before accepting workers from them.
Our HR teams continue to ensure that we comply with all applicable laws in the areas in which we are based. The Company always pays at least the minimum wage or the legally authorised rates for training apprentices.
Looking to the future, we intend to continue to improve our efforts to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking does not occur in any of our corporate activities by continuing to educate employees, identifying which operations are at highest risk of infiltration in relation to slavery and human trafficking and implementing corrective action if necessary.
This statement has been approved by the Terberg Environmental Group Limited board of directors who will review and update it annually.
