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 combatting slavery and human trafficking.
We are a provider of management consultancy services to the energy, finance and telecommunications sectors. Our head office is in London, United Kingdom with branch offices in Germany, New York, Abu Dhabi and Ireland. We have over 500 employees and operate worldwide. We have a global annual turnover of £108 million.
Our supply chains include (i) the procurement of 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 Anti-slavery commitments in our Code of Business Ethics reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing 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 risk we have in place systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Mitigate and assess the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Protect whistle blowers.
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors 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 Committee, which consists of representatives from our legal and finance team as well as members of our Partnership who are responsible for Risk and Corporate Social Responsibility in our business.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Baringa Partners LLP’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2016.
