Modern slavery and human trafficking statement 

Modern slavery is the recruitment, movement, harbouring or receiving of children, women or men through the use of force, coercion, abuse of vulnerability, deception or other means for the purpose of exploitation.

Individuals may be trafficked into, out of, or within the UK. They may be trafficked for a number of reasons, including sexual exploitation, forced labour, domestic servitude and organ harvesting.

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 introduced changes in UK law which focus on increasing transparency in supply chains.

Fulcrium is committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.  We are committed to ensuring there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business and in so far as is possible, to requiring our suppliers have a similar ethos.

Fulcrium will:

  • Comply with legislation and regulatory requirements in this area
  • Make suppliers and service providers aware that we promote the requirements of this legislation
  • Develop awareness of modern slavery issues throughout Fulcrium
  • Encourage suppliers and contractors to take their own actions and understand their obligations under this legislation
