Modern Slavery Act Statement
At Baringa, we are committed to upholding recognised human rights through the way we operate and have, since July 2011, had a ‘Code of Business Ethics’ in place which demonstrates Baringa’s commitment to trading ethically and fairly. We are also committed to improving our practices to ensure we are effectively combatting slavery and human trafficking from occurring within our business and our supply chain. We impose the same high standards on our suppliers, contractors and other business partners.
We are a provider of management consultancy services to clients in a wide variety of industries and market sectors, including energy, finance, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, consumer products, retail and government. Our head office is in London, United Kingdom and we have local offices in Germany, the United States, Abu Dhabi, Australia and Ireland. We have over 700 employees and operate worldwide. We have a global annual turnover of £170 million.
Our supply chains include the procurement of (i) general business services, for example, corporate services and specialist advisors; and (ii) sub-contractors and associates who provide niche and technical support for our client engagements.
Our Commitments and Policies
Our anti-slavery commitments (contained in our ‘Code of Business Ethics’) reflect Baringa’s conduct requirements to act ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. These commitment also require Baringa to implement effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking taking place in our business we have in place systems and policies to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas and unethical behaviour
- Ensure that we only work with suppliers who abide by our ‘Code of Business Ethics’ or adhere to similar principals and ethical guidelines
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring
- Protect whistle blowers
- Investigate all claims of unethical behaviour
We have zero tolerance of slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain comply with our values we have contractual obligations on our suppliers to ensure they are and remain compliant with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We have a dedicated Risk Executive group, consisting of representatives from our Legal and Finance team as well as members of our Partnership, which is directly responsible for the assessment of risk and Corporate Social Responsibility in our business.
