This statement, made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, sets out the approach taken by Richard Sanders Ltd to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business, and the actions undertaken to mitigate any such risks during the financial year ended 31 July 2019.
Richard Sanders Ltd is a family owned business operating in the sale of new and used vehicles, servicing, repairs and the supply of vehicle parts. We represent Renault, Nissan, Peugeot and Dacia franchises in Northamptonshire. We also operate a Used Car Centre dedicated to the sale of high quality used cars in Kettering.
Richard Sanders Ltd is committed to delivering high standards of corporate governance and a key element of this is managing the company in a socially responsible way. The company aims to employ the highest ethical and professional standards and always to comply with all local laws and regulations applicable to our business; it follows that Richard Sanders Ltd is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities and its supply chains. This commitment is emphasised in our employee training programmes and company policies. Richard Sanders Ltd also expects the same high standards which we set for ourselves from those parties with whom we engage, such as our suppliers and customers.
Due to the nature of our business and our approach to governance, we assess that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. However we aim to periodically review the effectiveness of the relevant policies and procedures that we have in place. We do not have key performance indicators in relation to slavery or human trafficking as any instance would be expected to be a breach of law, our supplier standards and/or our company policies.
This statement is approved by the Directors and signed on its behalf by:
Joint Managing Director
