This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement of Genting UK Plc (“Genting”) and its subsidiary companies for the financial year ending 31 December 2017.
Genting remains committed to the continuous improvement of its practices to combat slavery and human trafficking. We prohibit all forms of slavery and human trafficking in all parts of our business and supply chains.
Following a review of the steps we have taken this year, we consider that our business is at a relatively low risk of slavery and human trafficking given that we operate in the leisure industry and the majority of roles we offer and services we require from our suppliers are highly regulated or require technical or industry specific skills.
Our supply chains include: IT and technology, marketing and professional services, food and beverage, software and premises licences, and fixtures, fittings, and equipment supply. We will continue to ensure that we mitigate any slavery and human trafficking risk presented by our suppliers by implementing stringent contractual standards and by monitoring potential risk areas through audits, due diligence and by requiring key suppliers to confirm statements relating to anti-slavery and human trafficking.
We have designated responsibility to an administrator at each operational site for the conducting of right to work and reference checks against all new employees and we ensure that all staff involved in recruitment are aware of their obligations in relation to anti-slavery and human trafficking. Our HR business partners conduct audits during their visits to operational sites to ensure our staff are adhering to their responsibilities.
To promote understanding of the risks presented by slavery and human trafficking we provide training to our staff as part of their corporate social responsibility training and we have made the ‘Stronger Together’ anti-slavery and human trafficking video and advice leaflets available on our internal training academy so that it can be accessed and viewed by all staff. We supplement this training with specific policies on other social and ethical issues such as anti-bribery and corruption, harassment and bullying, and whistleblowing.
This statement has been approved by the board of Genting UK Plc on 22 February 2018 and is signed by Peter Brooks on the board’s behalf.
