Here you will find ElectraLink Ltd’s Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
ElectraLink Ltd (‘We’) are committed to improving our practices to combat modern slavery and human trafficking in our business by taking steps, as far as we are able, to ensure that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Since 1998, ElectraLink has operated the independent network and service that transfers data between energy companies in the UK electricity market – also known as the Data Transfer Service (DTS). Alongside secretariat and advisory functions, our data provision and cloud-based data analysis solutions are contributing to projects in the energy market’s transition to a flexible and low-carbon future.
We are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to identify risks and tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains. We recognise that this is not a requirement for our company under section 54 Modern Slavery Act but we believe this is an important step for us to take.
Our supply chains mainly consist of the following:
- Data services providers
- IT hardware providers
- IT software providers
- Marketing service suppliers
- Professional service suppliers
- Professional advisors
We are committed to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business.
Our Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains. We have additional policies in place such as the whistleblowing procedure and procurement policy to ensure we act ethically.
Due diligence and risk assessment
To help identify and monitor the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain we have a procurement process, the suppliers need to comply with the supplier code of conduct, and we are currently in the process of implementing a questionnaire.
We vet suppliers and sub-contractors to ensure that they are committed to ethical labour practices. We include anti-slavery and human tracking provisions in all our contracts with suppliers.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we have trained our Procurement Department and we will be rolling out training to the remainder of our staff.
This voluntary Anti Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is made for the financial year ending 2024. It was approved by board on 23rd November 2023.
