Modern Slavery Statement

Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made by Sea Containers Hotel Ltd (“Sea Containers London”) on behalf of itself and its group subsidiaries.

Sea Containers London operates 1 hotel, 2 bars and a restaurant.

This statement is made on behalf of Sea Containers London, only pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Sea Containers London’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31st March 2019.

Sea Containers London is committed to ensuring that it conducts its business ethically and with integrity. Sea Containers London does not use slave labour anywhere in its own business, nor does Sea Containers London tolerate forced or compulsory labour or human trafficking. Sea Containers London is committed to ensuring that no such behaviour takes place in connection with the company.

This commitment extends to Sea Containers London’s supply chain.

Sea Containers London’s supplier relationships are based on lawful, efficient and fair practices. We expect our suppliers to obey the laws that require them to treat workers fairly and provide a safe and healthy work environment. Sea Containers London will not knowingly use any supplier that uses forced prison labour. Sea Containers London will only work with suppliers who comply with all laws regarding slavery and human trafficking in the countries in which the suppliers are doing business.

Sea Containers London requires its suppliers to comply with all applicable laws and to adopt compliant working practices, including not utilising any form of compulsory labour or human trafficking. Sea Containers London’s suppliers are obliged to pass these requirements on to their own suppliers as well, and Sea Containers London expects all of its suppliers to police their own supply chains in order to root out modern slavery of any kind.

Sea Containers London encourages anyone with information regarding modern slavery or human trafficking taking place at Sea Containers London or anywhere in its supply chain to make a report to its Directors.

Following a risk assessment and review of Sea Containers London’s supply chain and the steps that are being taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains, we have taken the following steps to combat slavery and human trafficking:

  • Provided training to key personnel with procurement responsibility on how to identify human trafficking and forced labour issues.
  • Reviewing and amending our practices as appropriate to seek to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not present in our supply through contacting our suppliers.

We will continue to review our supply chain and our policies and procedures to address prevention of modern slavery and human trafficking.

This statement has been approved and signed by all Board Directors of Sea Containers Hotel Ltd.
