Anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for McLaren Automotive Limited financial year 2016

 

This statement sets out the steps that McLaren Automotive Limited (“McLaren”) has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our company or supply chain.

 

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of 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 are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our company dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own company or our supply chain. This is reflected in McLaren’s Anti-Slavery Policy. We are a global manufacturer of high performance super cars. We are the parent company of the McLaren Automotive group. The McLaren Automotive group has over 2000 employees and operates globally. McLaren’s production centre is based in the United Kingdom.

 

RELATIONSHIPS WITH SUPPLIERS

 

We actively manage our relationships with our suppliers and take steps to ensure we have transparency in our supply chain. As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring our supply chain we are reviewing our request for quotation process and the contractual terms we have in place with our suppliers to place more stringent obligations on our supplier to comply with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations. We do not allow suppliers to sub-contract to third parties without prior written consent from McLaren to ensure we maintain transparency in our supply chain. Where appropriate and with the welfare and safety of those individuals at risk as a priority, we will provide support and guidance to our suppliers to help them address their concerns in their own business and supply chains.

 

RECRUITMENT AND EMPLOYEES

 

All employees are required to adhere to our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. All employees are encouraged to report any act, treatment of workers or working conditions within our company or any tier of our supply chain that they feel constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, to their manager, the Human Resources Department or confidentially in accordance with our Whistleblowing Policy. We undertake a “right to work” check on all direct employees prior to them commencing their roles in our company. This includes, where applicable, that the employee has a valid visa and is of an appropriate age to work.

 

OUR FUTURE PLANS

 

Over the next twelve months we intend to:

  • deliver training to employees in the roles most likely to be in a position to identify and address modern slavery risk;
  • reviewing supplier due diligence and auditing procedures;
  • reviewing our tender process with a view to strengthening our approach to ethical and responsible sourcing; and
  • perform a risk assessment to identify key areas of risk within our business and supply chain and implement a plan to address any areas of risk going forward.

 

This statement is made in accordance with s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending on 2016.
