Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 for the financial year ended December 31, 2019.

Our Structure and Business

Robert Brett and Sons Limited is the parent company of a group operating in the UK with some 800 employees. We produce and supply a wide range of construction materials including aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed and pre-cast concrete products.  Most of our supply chain is based in the UK.  As such, materials and products are largely sourced only from the UK.  A small proportion of our supply chain is based outside the UK, predominantly in Europe.  We recognise that some of these countries (in particular those outside Europe) may present an increased risk of modern slavery and that increased due diligence and monitoring of such suppliers is required.

Our Policy and Procedure Regarding Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

We take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of slavery, human trafficking, child labour and breach of national labour laws and are committed to acting professionally and fairly in all our relationships and business dealings.   All new suppliers must complete a new supplier questionnaire in which they are asked about their compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. 

During 2019 we have reviewed our procedures and policies with respect to modern slavery and labour law compliance.  This review has resulted in a new Modern Slavery and Labour Rights Policy, enhanced procedures for supplier due diligence, revised terms and conditions of business and a training programme for employees, all of which are to be rolled out in 2020.
