Betterstore Self Storage Operations Limited is making a voluntary modern slavery and human trafficking statement relating to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all its forms and make this statement to set out the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or in our supply chains.
We are an operator of self storage assets based in the United Kingdom.
Our annual turnover is under £36 million. Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.
The company’s key assets are its personnel meaning that we have a relatively small and specialised supply chain which is focused on the supply of high level services supporting our operations.
OUR COMMITMENT TO ETHICAL TRADING
We are committed to ethical trading principles and to acquiring goods and services without harm to others. As an operator of self storage assets, we consider the risk of modern slavery, servitude or human trafficking existing within our business or supply chains to be relatively low.
Our suppliers are principally based in the UK and support the business’s IT, Finance, HR, Business and Know How systems and our real estate and office infrastructure. We keep those relationships under close review and regularly evaluate any risks to modern slavery and human trafficking that may arise in relations to them.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff. We comply with relevant UK employment legislation and a commitment to the health and wellbeing of all our personnel is a core component of our HR procedures.
This voluntary slavery and human trafficking statement is made in connection with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
