Slavery and human trafficking statement
(Modern Slavery Act 2015)
Introduction from the Chief Executive
We acknowledge our shared responsibility to be alert to the risks of slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chain.
Inter Terminals Limited has a number of UK subsidiaries, operating terminals that supply bulk liquid storage services within in the UK. On 30 November 2018, Inter Terminals Limited acquired six further bulk liquid storage terminals in the UK, comprising part of an acquisition of NuStar Energy, L.P.’s European bulk liquid storage business (the “New UK Business”). Our supply chains continue to be predominantly comprised of goods and services supplied to our business by other UK based businesses, including in particular services from construction and maintenance contractors.
Our Stance on Slavery and Human Trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our business in the UK and to reducing the risk of modern slavery or human trafficking in the supply chain of our business in the UK, whether the supply chain is within or outside the UK.
Activity over the Financial Year
Well over 95% of our own workforce in the UK was comprised of salaried employees.
Aside from the New UK Business, we extended our procedures to ensure that all major suppliers engaged by our business in the UK are vetted regarding their compliance with The Modern Slavery Act 2015. In the New UK Business, we commenced work on the adoption of procedures to ensure that all new major suppliers are vetted regarding their compliance with The Modern Slavery Act 2015. We remained aware of potential risks from sourcing goods and materials from outside the UK, although this was relatively rare.
We continued to remain alert to any potential changes to the risks in our business and ensured that senior managers had sufficient awareness of those risks so that such risks can be minimised and concerns can be reported and acted upon. We also took steps to raise awareness with employees, including providing them with the contact details for the Modern Slavery Helpline.
We will continue to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement for Inter Terminals Limited and its subsidiaries incorporated in England and Wales for the financial year ended 31 December 2018.
