The majority of risk lies in our supply chain. Whilst the majority of our suppliers are
UK-based and supply standard goods or services, we recognise there are areas of potentially
higher risk in our suppliers outside of the UK. Suppliers have been risk assessed and
categorised taking into account the nature of their business, as well as their country of
operation and product and industry characteristics. Suppliers categorised as presenting
significant risk of modern slavery are subject to additional due diligence, primarily based
on public sources of information including checks of their own modern slavery and human
trafficking statements where applicable, and any other published policies and procedures.
This risk assessment exercise has been completed in respect of suppliers to our Coventry
factory, we continue to have not identified any occurrence of modern slavery within our
We have a team that is addressing risks in the area of modern slavery and ensuring that
appropriate measures are applied to assess, manage and minimise risk. This team is made up
of representatives from Human Resources, Procurement and Quality departments.
As an employer of predominantly professionally qualified and highly skilled people, we
consider that the risk of modern slavery within our business remains low. We apply robust
policies and procedures concerning employment screening and selection, such as work
eligibility checks and employment conditions.
We have adopted our parent company’s, Brembo, Supplier Code of Conduct which applies to our
providers of goods and services and sets out the standards we expect them to observe,
including in respect of modern slavery risks. Where our standards are not met, suppliers are
expected to take and evidence remedial steps to ensure their activities in our supply chain
are free from modern slavery.
