UK Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking


Slavery, servitude, forced labour and human trafficking (Modern Slavery) is a global and growing issue given the rapid rise in global migration.

Given the nature of our business, we believe that there is minimal risk amongst the supply chain that supports our organisation. Nevertheless, Permasteelisa (UK) Ltd (Permasteelisa) takes a zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery of any kind and is fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking within its operations and its supply chain. We expect a high level of ethical conduct from those organisations with which we conduct business and we expect our employees to report any concerns they have to the Directors of the Company. Corporate social responsibility is central to our working culture.


Our Business

Permasteelisa is a worldwide leading contractor in the engineering, project management, manufacturing and installation of architectural envelopes and interior systems.

Permasteelisa is the UK subsidiary of the Permasteelisa Group and has its head office in London. It employs around 100 people directly, and in addition engages a substantial number of subcontract workers across the UK.


Our Supply Chain

The relationship with the majority of our suppliers has been established over many years. All new suppliers have to undergo a rigorous pre-qualification process to ensure their compliance with Permasteelisa's values.


Our policy on Slavery and Human Trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business. Our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy and our Code of Conduct reflect our commitment to acting ethically with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere within our supply chains.

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occuring within our supply chains, we have systems in place to:


/ Establish and assess areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains;
/ Identify and assess potential risk areas when approving new suppliers;
/ Regularly review our existing supply chain;
/ Build long-standing relationships with our supply chain, based on collaboration;
/ Communicate clearly our expectations in respect of ethical behaviour; and
/ Provide adequate protection for whistleblowers.



In order to ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy is included within our employee handbook and in our Management Systems.

We invest in educating our staff to recognize the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. Through our training programmes, employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy.
