LeasePlan's ongoing commitment to combatting slavery and human trafficking

During 2017 /2018 LeasePlan UK are committed to the following:

  • Annual refresh and internal communication of our Anti-Slavery policy
  • Carrying out an assessment of our supply chain in order to further assess the risk posed and to enable LeasePlan UK to manage that risk moving forwards
  • Continued training for all teams
  • Design and implementation of a supplier self-assessment
  • Annual refresh of the Annual Compliance Statement for the LeasePlan Code of Conduct for all employees
  • Communication to suppliers to promote awareness of the LeasePlan Whistleblowing facility

Modern slavery key perfomance indicators

LeasePlan will know the effectiveness of the steps that it is taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:

  • Annual training of LeasePlan UK in Modern Slavery has been completed;
  • All employees have signed the Annual Compliance Statement for the LeasePlan Code of Conduct; and
  • Any adverse media reports for Suppliers in high risk areas identified as part of the Supplier CDD process are fully investigated to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking taking place or an alternative Supplier has been used.

It should be noted that during 2017/18 no negative indicators were reported.
