Modern Slavery Act 2015
Erwin Hymer Group UK is committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of its business dealings. As part of this commitment, Erwin Hymer Group UK has adopted a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery - whether in the form of servitude; forced, bonded, or indentured labour; slavery; human trafficking or any other activity that amounts to an unreasonable restriction on the free movement of workers.
Erwin Hymer Group UK is one of the leading manufacturers of leisure vehicles in the UK. We operate internationally and export our products to Europe and Asia. Our business model is based on providing our customers with high quality manufactured leisure vehicles. In meeting our customers’ requirements, we operate procurement programmes through global supply chains, involving a wide network of suppliers and distributors. It is recognised that within this structure the potential exists for the human rights of individual workers to be violated.
Erwin Hymer Group UK’s approach to addressing the challenge of modern slavery is to ensure that there is transparency in our own business and throughout our supply chains. We expect the same high standards from all our contractors, suppliers, distributors and other business partners, consistent with our obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We include specific prohibitions in our contracting processes against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards. We may terminate our relationship with any third party if they are found to be in breach of this statement. Erwin Hymer Group UK’s zerotolerance approach to modern slavery will be communicated to all contractors, suppliers, distributors and other business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter.
Erwin Hymer Group UK Ltd will continue to review its policies and processes, for the benefit of all of our stakeholders, in order to raise standards with regards to operating in an ethical and sustainable manner across our supply chains.
