Supply Chain and Modern Slavery

BG&E's screening procedure includes how we identify, appoint and manage our supply chain partners, and this includes a pre-qualifying questionnaire requesting information on their policies, including Modern Slavery and whistleblowing to ensure alignment with our commitment.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour, or human trafficking, and we are committed to enforcing systems to ensure human rights violations do not occur within BG&E or within our supply chain. BG&E is constantly improving its modern slavery policy and practices and assessing its modern slavery risks, inclusive of our supply chain.

The Board, Executive Leadership Team, Safety, Quality & Risk Management Group (SQRC) and the Risk Management Group (RMG) all operate under charters that require compliance with ethical behaviour and the overseeing of potential Modern Slavery risks within BG&E’s operations. The SQRC meets quarterly and is responsible for the oversight of BG&E’s response to human rights, including the impact on BG&E’s business, and provides advice and guidance to the Board on those matters.
