Modern Slavery Act Statement

MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT (SMALL BUSINESS)

Our business, Ainsty Risk Consulting Ltd (“Ainsty Risk”) is committed to combating slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. This statement relates to the financial year ending 30 June 2020 

As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However: 

  1. We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation; 
  2. We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation.  

To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and: 

  1. We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed.  
  2. We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in that business.  
  3.  As far as it is reasonably practicable, we routinely examine our supply chains and to confirm that there is no evidence of slavery or human trafficking. 

Our business provides management consultancy services associated with energy, regulatory compliance and risk management. 

Ainsty Risk Consulting Ltd is a private limited company, registered in England. 

  • We employee up to 5 employees at our offices in York, United Kingdom. 
    • All employees are over the age of 16  
    • All employees are paid at or over the applicable national minimum wage 
    • Operationally all employees report to one of the two directors. 
  • We are an independent business and are commissioned by businesses up to multinational corporations and government agencies 
  • Subcontractors will be compliant with British modern slavery requirements 

We operate in the following countries: 

  • United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the “UK”) 
  • The member states of the European Union, and  
  • Other countries from time-to-time. 

Our supply chain is limited to the provision of our offices, data services, stationary, computer hardware and software, and travel and accommodation. From time-to-time we engage with specialist contractors, which by our own risk assessment have very low risk of exploitation. 

We understand that certain industry sectors and geographical regions entail greater risk of exploitation than others. We believe that our supply chain is not in one of those sectors or regions.  

 

Where it is reasonably practicable, we ensure that businesses in our supply chain have made a similar statement relating to slavery and human trafficking. 

The person in our business responsible for assessing matters relating to slavery and human trafficking is: David Hirst, Director 

We also encourage all employees to report on any matters relating to slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains of which they become aware.
