Modern Slavery Statement
The ‘Modern Slavery Act’ was introduced in the United Kingdom in 2015. Designed to target slavery and human trafficking in the UK, the law introduces tough penalties and sentences for offences relating to slavery and human trafficking.
Large UK businesses are now required to publish an annual statement to ensure transparency across their entire supply chain.
FJL Recycling Ltd is recognised for its responsible business practices including with regards human rights.
In line with the Modern Slavery Act, FJL Recycling Ltd has just published its own Statement. In it we describe the steps that we taken during to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking from taking place in our business and supply chains.
FJL Recycling Ltd has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain, and imposes those same high standards on its contractors, suppliers and other business partners.
Due diligence processes
