Our high risk areas
Langley Arboriculture Ltd believes the high-risk area in our industry is the use of Sub-Contractors to carry out operations for us. We have identified this and have put procedures in place to check our contractors and supplies.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
Langley Arboriculture Ltd operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery [and on site audits which include a review of working conditions]. Our anti-slavery policy forms part of our contract with all suppliers and they are required to confirm that no part of their business operations contradicts this policy.
In addition to the above, as part of our contract with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
We regularly conduct training for our procurement/buying teams so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within our supply chain.
