Modern Slavery Act
Our Modern Slavery Act Statement
Drax Group has over 2,700 employees and operates an integrated value chain across three principal areas of activity in the US and the UK: sustainable wood pellet production; flexible, low carbon and renewable energy generation; and energy sales and services to business customers. Our activities are underpinned by safety, sustainability and operational excellence.
We are committed to conducting business with honesty, integrity and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. We have clear policies and standards in place to safeguard our employees, temporary employees and contractors. We respect our employees’ rights in areas such as freedom of association and collective bargaining. We do not tolerate any form of human trafficking, forced or bonded labour or the exploitation ofchildren or vulnerable persons in our own business or our supply chains.
This is our third Modern Slavery Statement as required by the UK Modern Slavery Act. In this, we outline the progress made in 2018 and the improvements planned for 2019.
This statement is made in compliance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending December 2018.
