MODERN SLAVERY ACT

Peter Brotherton, Chief Executive Officer. 26th July 2019

Our Business

Redcentric is a managed service provider. We deliver highly available network, cloud and collaboration solutions that help public and private sector organisations succeed.

Supply Chain

Redcentric’s supply chain is relatively straightforward as it doesn’t manufacture any of the products we provide. The vast majority of the products purchased are globally recognised brands that are supplied through distribution or reseller channels within the UK.

Respecting human rights and environmental issues in the supply chain is ultimately Redcentric’s suppliers’ responsibility. As customers, however, Redcentric plays an active role in supplier development to ensure that they operate in an ethical and transparent manner.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Redcentric recognises that modern slavery is a crime that can take many forms such as slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking. The Company has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery both within its own business and its dealings with other organisations.

Due Diligence Processes For Slavery And Human Trafficking

The Company conducts due diligence on all new suppliers, issues a questionnaire that must be completed and is reviewed internally before the supplier can be added to the Company’s approved supplier list. The Company requires that they confirm that:

  • They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their own business and supply chain
  • They pay their employees the prevailing minimum wage
  • They comply with the Act if their turnover is over £36m and provide the URL

Training

Redcentric has a dedicated procurement team who manage all the Company’s suppliers and undertake regular training so that they understand the signs of modern slavery and what to do if they suspect that it is taking place within the Company’s supply chain.

Further Steps

Redcentric will also take further steps to engage with its current suppliers to make sure they comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to minimise any potential risks.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and has been approved by the Board of Directors of the Company on 26 July 2019. It constitutes the Redcentric group of companies’ slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st March 2019, which for the purposes of this statement includes Redcentric plc and Redcentric Solutions Limited.
