Hlls adopts new policy in response to Modern Slavery Act

By Anita Jaynes on 21 July, 2016

The Hills Group has committed to conducting its business in a transparent and ethical manner with the introduction of a Responsible Purchasing Policy.

Mike Hill, chief executive said: “We believe that working with suppliers, contractors and business partners who hold the same attitude to business as ourselves enables us to maintain the current high standards we operate to.”

The Responsible Purchasing Policy also provides the framework for Hills to comply with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Details of new policy have been sent to all Hills’ suppliers who are requested in turn to confirm their compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 along with supporting  the principles that Hills will apply when appointing contractors and business partners to work with and in selecting suppliers of goods and services.

Mike continued: “This new policy ensures that social, ethical and environmental considerations are incorporated into Hills’ future business decisions.  It also commits us to minimising any negative impacts which may arise from our operations, and maximises benefits for the environment and local communities.”
