Organisational Structure and Supply Chain

This statement covers the activities of Arcus Solutions (Holdings) Ltd and any of its subsidiaries.

Our supply chain comprises a wide range of suppliers and contractors from SMEs to much larger corporations across multi-skill sets within the FM sector. We engage contractor organisations to carry out works and services on our clients’ sites and for the sourcing of materials and manufactured products.

We fully support our corporate objectives to maintain respect for all and eradicate modern slavery and human trafficking.

After a careful review of our activities, the following were identified as being at high risk of slavery or human trafficking and therefore, have relevant controls in place to mitigate risks. Responsibility for the organisation’s anti-slavery initiatives is as follows:

Relevant Policies

The organisation operates the following policies that describe its approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations:

Due Diligence

Arcus ensures their suppliers of goods and services comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and does not support, or deal with, suppliers or businesses that are knowingly involved with slavery, human trafficking, or the exploitation of vulnerable adults or children. Arcus will not tolerate the use of deception, or sexual or threatening behavior within the organisation or its supply chain.

Arcus actively seek compliance from the management of our internal procedures where we request supplier/sub-contractors to provide, evidence that sound ethical standards (including, but not limited to, health, safety, welfare, and environmental) are achieved and maintained, and a high standard of corporate social responsibility is recognised, throughout the supply chain.

All Arcus suppliers and subcontractors must conform to all legislative responsibilities and our internal procedures and obligations set out in Arcus Terms and conditions for the Purchase of Goods and/or services, particularly Clause 13 – Modern Slavery which states:

“The supplier shall:

The Supplier undertakes that neither it nor any other person in its supply chain will use trafficked, bonded, child, or forced labor or has attempted to use trafficked, bonded, child, or forced labor within its supply chain.

Arcus may immediately terminate this Contract in the event of any breach of this clause 13 by the Supplier in which case the Supplier shall not be entitled to any compensation or any further payments or remuneration.

Arcus shall not be required to make any payment to the Supplier that might otherwise be due from Arcus in respect of this Agreement if the Supplier has breached this clause 13.

Arcus shall not be required to make any payment to the Supplier that might otherwise be due from Arcus in respect of this Agreement if the Supplier has breached this clause 13.

The Supplier shall indemnify Arcus from and against any losses suffered or incurred by Arcus or for which Arcus may become liable arising out of or in connection with any breach of this clause 11, whether or not this Contract has expired or been terminated.”

We use Alcumus Safe Contractor to support the validation of our suppliers and sub-contractors relating to accreditations and what they have in place to meet modern slavery legislation. Reviewing any policies and statements they may have including anti-bribery and corruption policy and how they ensure their supply chain complies with legislation.

Arcus has implemented the Health, Safety, Quality, and Environment Contractor Monitoring Process with board approval to further support the management and effective control of our supply chain. This will consist of a program of desktop and site monitoring activities against our supply chain to ensure that they are compliant with HSQE, legal and other obligations when conducting work on behalf of Arcus.
