TANGENT TRADING LIMITED
MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2018

INTRODUCTION

This statement is made pursuant to s.54(1) the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (The Act).

Modern slavery takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

The Act requires certain commercial organisations operating in the UK, to publish a statement each financial year.

Tangent Trading Ltd (Tangent) is such a commercial organisation and accordingly this statement sets out the steps it has undertaken - and will continue to undertake - in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking.

Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. It is a crime and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. Tangent has a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in its business and in its wider supply chain. Staff are expected to report concerns and management is expected to act upon such concerns.

THE BUSINESS

Tangent is an entrepreneurial company focussed on trading in non-ferrous metals, particularly copper, around the world.

POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Tangent has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking and is committed to playing its part by contributing to preventing it. Tangent contemplates that its supply chain and customers and all those with whom it works will share its values and will wish to conduct their activities in a way which meets this principle.

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

As part of Tangent’s initiative to identify and mitigate risk it has in place systems to:

  • • Identify and assess potential risk areas in the supply chains.
  • • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in the supply chains.
  • • Protect whistle blowers

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO TANGENT VALUES

Tangent expects all those in its supply chain and its contractors to comply with its values and its policies with respect to slavery and human trafficking and they have been notified accordingly.

TRAINING

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in the supply chains and the business, relevant members of staff and Directors have been suitably and adequately briefed.
